A CALL has gone out to residents and businesses to help with activities forming part of this year’s Bradford Science Festival.

There are lots of opportunities to get involved on the weekend of 20 to 21 July. Volunteers are needed for running activities, marshalling, setting up, sign posting and many other jobs.

Bradford Council has also called for dance groups who can choreograph and come and perform a dance in City Park that highlights the suffering and devastation plastic waste has on ocean life. They are also looking for artists who could create a space themed peep-through backdrop for people to use for photographs.

Businesses between City Park and Broadway have been asked to support the Scavenger Hunt by displaying answers in their shop windows.

This year marks 50 years since the first humans landed on the Moon. It also is the International Year of the Periodic Table to mark the 150th anniversary of the table’s creation by Dmitry Mendeleev.

Lee Anne Sagar, one of the team coordinating the Bradford Council activities said: “This is a fabulous opportunity to support a large event, partnering with the National Science and Media Museum.

"This year’s Bradford Science Festival will be an out-of-this-world weekend of surprising science in the city with lots of free family fun, brilliant events and special guests.”

The Bradford Science Festival will take place between 18 - 21 July 18 - 21.
