You’re invited to…Lab Live: Curiosity with OKIDO
We’ve teamed up with OKIDO, the independent arts and science magazine for young children and their families, for another extra special Lab Live.
After a sell-out event in September, we’ve got another 2-day bumper Lab Live planned, for all the tinkering and experimenting you can handle – don’t miss out!
We’ll be heading into the unknown with activities that explore curiosity, where it can take us and what wonders can be discovered when curiosity is encouraged. It’s an essential part of invention, imagination, learning and play.
What can I expect at Lab Live?
This Lab Live will inspire the next generation of innovators, scientists, makers and inventors by testing their curiosity, exploring new worlds and seeking out new ideas.
Have you ever wondered how we explore space? what nature looks like up close? Or how others feel and experience emotions?
We’ll have 12 in-depth, hands-on activities from iOi, OKIDO and partners including OjO, AugmentifyIt®, E2 Young Engineers, BitterSuite and more. You can code with LEGO, try out augmented reality, get stuck into building and design challenges make microscopic art and more.
Here’s the highlights to get you…curious!

When is Lab Live?
Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May.
There are morning and afternoon tickets available on each day. You can join us for 3 hours or 2 hours, select your ticket option when you book. You can attend on either day or both and you can buy tickets for the morning and afternoon sessions if you like! The same (or very similar) activities will run on both days.
There will be an hour break between 1-2:00pm between the morning and afternoon sessions. If you have a morning ticket you can stay for lunch until 2:00pm. If you have a 3-hour afternoon ticket, you can arrive at 1:00pm for lunch, but activities will not begin until 2:00pm.
Who is Lab Live for?
Ideal for children aged between 3-12 years old and their families, friends and carers. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Children under 3 are welcome, please register them for a free ‘under 3’ ticket. Activities are aimed at children 3+ so there will be limited activities for very young children to take part in.
How much does Lab Live cost?
£10 for 3 hours or £8 for 2 hours and you can attend in the morning or afternoon – select the ticket for the timeslot you want. All activities can be enjoyed as part of the ticket price – 1 or 2 activities may include the option to take home materials, which will have a small fee to cover their cost. If you’re a Lambeth resident, we have a limited number of discounted tickets for local residents, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request the promotional code.
Do you take cash or card?
We prefer payments by card for food, drinks and at the Imagination Store and the OKIDO Store. We are able to take cash, but have limited change available.
Will there be food and drink?
There will be hot drinks available to purchase and a lunch break between 1-2:00pm, where a street market vendor will be on site selling food. As always, you can bring your own food, which can be eaten in the Imagination Lab.
