DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival

This February, we will celebrate Shrewsbury as "The Origin of Independent Thinking" and birthplace of Charles Darwin - the most independent thinker of them all. From free guided tours to brainteasing lectures and dance performances- This two and a half week programme is the first of its kind and cements Shrewsbury’s rightful position as not only the birthplace of Charles Darwin but the inspiration behind his independent thinking which went on to change the story of evolution around the world.

LEGO®: Brick History

Brick History takes you on a journey through pivotal moments in world history, modelled in LEGO® bricks. This is history brought to life at a relatable, human level, featuring key figures from Mozart to Martin Luther King, scientific discoveries from the Big Bang to DNA and recent history from mobile phones to the moon landings. This exhibition has something for people of all ages. From tiny recreations of Concorde and Titanic that would sit in your hand, to a 1.5m square castle bustling with activity in periods of both peace and war, there is something for all to be amazed by and to admire.
