Manchester Science Festival is an annual creative, playful and surprising celebration of science.

It's the largest science festival in England, and the 2017 edition will take place from Thursday 19 to Sunday 29 October.

The first announced headliner for the 2017 edition is Robots, an exhibition exploring humanity’s 500-year quest to recreate ourselves in mechanised form. Featuring a unique collection of over 100 robots, from a 16th-century mechanical monk to robots from both science fiction and modern-day research labs, this exhibition will enable visitors to discover the cultural, historical and technological context of humanoid robots.
