Following the success of last year’s event, Stamford’s own bio-science festival is back with a bang this weekend.

The Big Biology Day will be taking place tomorrow at Stamford High School from 10am-3pm.

On hand will be a number of biology experts, including Dr Mike Leahy, a research scientist and TV presenter with his fascinating Zoo Bus, where people will be able to get up close and personal with spiders, snakes, lizards and insects.

Discover how to measure aspects of your fitness, sample some liquid chlorophyll and find out about Stamford’s community orchards.

Alongside all of this will be displays and activities from wildlife groups including the Exotic Pet Refuge.

Mike Leahy will also be giving a free foundation lecture this evening, for more information please e-mail foundation@ses.lincs.sch.uk

Entrance to the school on Saturday will be via Park Lane, off Barnack Road.
