The UK’s largest free ‘Maker’ community festival is returning to Liverpool Central Library.

Taking place from 9am to 5pm on Saturday 2 July, which aim to introduce people of all ages to how science, technology, engineering and arts and crafts are shaping our world.

This year, there will be inclusive and free fun-filled family workshops and showcases, covering topics from 3D printing to knitting and robots to rockets – Liverpool MakeFest will be bursting with activities across three floors, breakout rooms and even on the outside and upper terraces of Liverpool Central Library.

Organised by teams of volunteers and the local ‘Maker’ community it attracts innovative makers, creative and visual artists, electronic engineers, musicians, crafters, and hobbyists from all over the UK eager to share their skills, expertise and knowledge.

Since its creation in 2015, Liverpool MakeFest has become the place to hook-up, network, brew ideas, co-create and include the whole community in demonstrations and opportunities to try things out and be inspired.

Although the event is free, booking a ticket is recommended. For all the information and to secure a ticket, head to www.liverpoolmakefest.org.

Assistant Mayor and Cabinet Member for Culture and Visitor Economy, Councillor Harry Doyle, said:

This event really evolved in its first four years to become a hub of creativity that was both inclusive and inspiring. I’m delighted that it’s back, bigger than ever before – its aim is to make the worlds of science and technology accessible, and to do so in a way that is fun and engaging and can help ignite a spark whatever your age.”

Caroline Keep , Teacher, Data Scientist and Liverpool MakeFest co-creator and organiser, said:

“I’m thrilled to see the return of Makefest! It’s such a honour to bring leading makers and digital innovators back to our annual showcase for young people in Liverpool.
