2025 Festival Dates: 5 & 6 July

STEAM Zone with Blackburn College

STEAM is everywhere – from the food we eat, to how we travel, to how we live. It is key to producing music, architecture, cosmetics, vehicles – in fact anything!

In the STEAM Zone, you will find workshops galore delivered by Blackburn College. 

Build a phone holder out of timber (or even a copper pipe!), programme robots, plant something in your newly decorated pot and much, much more! This super family friendly area will get your hands working and your mind whirring.

Please note: to control capacity there might be a queue for this area at times, and some workshops may have sign-up slots on the day
