You’re invited to… Lab Live: Future Me

What will the future look like? Through imaginative invention, puppetry, storytelling, virtual reality, green screen, animation, e-textiles, wearable technology and more, you can explore a host of activities, demonstrations and more across the Imagination Lab and the Engine Hall, our 12,000 sq foot warehouse space!

At Lab Live: Future Me, we will explore new tools and environments so children can imagine their future and a future world – they’ll create their future ‘me’ and journey through our imagination zones to explore, experiment, invent and play.

Lab Live: Future Me takes place Saturday 9 June. There are morning (10:00am-1:00pm), afternoon (2:00-5:00pm) and all day tickets available. There will be an hour break between 1:00-2:00pm between the morning and afternoon sessions. Those with morning only tickets are welcome to stay for lunch, but will need to leave the Lab by 2:00pm. Those with afternoon tickets are welcome to arrive at 1:00pm for lunch, but activities will not begin until 2:00pm.

Who is Lab Live: Future Me for and how much does it cost?

This event is ideal for children aged between 6-12 years old and their families, friends and carers. Please note, all children must be accompanied by an adult. Children under 6 are welcome to attend and do not require a ticket, but as the activities are aimed at children 6+ there will be limited activities for younger children to take part in.

Tickets cost £8 for a half day and £14 for a full day. All activities can be enjoyed for free, but some stalls and activities include an enhanced or take-home option, which is paid.

If you’re a Lambeth resident, you’re eligible for free tickets on a first come first served basis. You can receive notifications about when free ticket codes are release by signing up here or you can email us at hello@ioi.london to request the code.

Do you take cash or card?

We prefer payments by card for food, drinks and at the Imagination Store. We are able to take cash, but have limited change available. If the event is not sold out and tickets are available on the door, we also prefer to take card payments.

Is there food and drink at Lab Live: Future Me?

There will be hot drinks available to purchase throughout the day and a lunch break between 1:00-2:00pm, where a street market vendor will be on site selling food. Those with morning only tickets are welcome to stay for lunch, but will need to leave the Lab by 2:00pm. Those with afternoon tickets are welcome to arrive at 1:00pm for lunch, but activities will not begin until 2:00pm. As always, we welcome you to bring your own food, which can be eaten in the Lab.
