The Friday Night Experiment draws inspiration from discovery of graphene

08 Jun 2015

The Museum of Science and Industry would like to invite staff from the University to attend The Friday Night Experiment on 26 June, part of the Experimental Weekender

The Friday Night Experiment

Taking place from 7pm until 10pm, the Friday Night Experiment draws inspiration from the creative experimentation that led to the discovery of graphene. This adult-only event includes live performances of Graphene Suite – a new piece of music by Sara Lowes, ‘composer in residence’ at the National Graphene Institute and commissioned by Brighter Sound.

Featuring performances from the acrobats of Circus House Manchester, screen printing, science selfies and more, the Friday Night Experiment is the start of a weekend of discovery inspired by graphene.


The Friday Night Experiment is free to attend but booking is advised. Book exclusive tickets for University staff online at:
