We will be capping the number of visitors this year, to ensure a better quality of experience for attendees, and would suggest that you purchase your tickets in plenty of time.

Thanks to Alfie Kirk from @BritSciNorwich for the photos.

Just to let you know that we have had a few queries about our advised minimum age of 7 years for the event on 9 June. This is just designed as guidance for parents or guardians. We certainly know of many 5 and 6 year olds who are really interested in what is going on out there, and they will be most welcome on Saturday 9 June at Seething.
