August 11th 2021, 4:13 pm by Ben Norris

Tŷ Pawb has joined forces with their new neighbours, Xplore! to bring the DARGANFOD//DISCOVER Science Festival back to the streets of Wrexham once again.

The festival was last held in Wrexham in 2018 and featured robots, star gazing and talks on evolutionary psychology, artificial intelligence and the philosophy of the mind!

This year’s event promises to be just as wide and varied. The theme will be a celebration of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) and will include interactive workshops, presentations, talks and activities for the whole family.

The festival will run from 21st till the 22nd of August 2021.

The entire festival has been planned so that should the Covid-19 pandemic still necessitate a lockdown then the festival activities will still be able to go ahead digitally.

Xplore! Science Discovery Centre and Darganfod Co-ordinator Clair Griffiths Said

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the local Wrexham community to come together and celebrate the amazing diversity you find in STEAM. As well as STEAM, Xplore! and Tŷ Pawb, hope to highlight the communities, businesses and people that make up Wrexham.

“The festival will lay the platform for DARGANFOD//DISCOVER to become a staple of the Wrexham town centre events calendar. We can’t wait for local people to be able to come along and get involved be that either in person or digitally.”

Tŷ Pawb’s Creative Director, Jo Marsh, said:

“We are very excited to be working with Xplore! on the return of the science festival and I hope this will be the first of many exciting town centre partnership events.
“DARGANFOD//DISCOVER will have something to entertain all ages and we are looking forward to seeing everyone coming together this summer, either in person or digitally, to enjoy, discover and be inspired.”
