For budding space scientists, bookworms, fun-lovers and thinkers alike, HowTheLightGetsIn has plenty on offer to keep children busy. And this year we're excited to be expanding our offering to include a whole Children and Young Adults Programme, including talks, interactive sessions and learning experiences to pique the curiosity of younger minds. Explore all these options in more detail below...

We welcome under 12s to the festival free of charge when accompanied by an adult.
