Adults Only 

W5 Late is a strictly adults-only, after-hours evening of interactive fun at Northern Ireland's award-winning science and discovery centre. At W5, fun has no age limit but for one night only, there are no kids allowed and grown-ups are given the run of the place!

Now is your chance to explore over 250 hands-on exhibits with not a child in sight. Scale the heights of Climbit, try your hand at TV production, walk through the vortex, climb aboard a pirate ship and so much more!

Plus, their fully licensed bar will also be open where you can enjoy a cold glass of beer or wine after an evening of adventure.

Admission is £15 per person (plus booking fees.)

Capacity is limited, so pre-booking essential.
