Curiosity Carnival took place last Friday and by all accounts ran smoothly and was a great success.

We just wanted to share a massive thank you to everyone involved - researchers, support staff, and anyone else who helped make it happen.

 Check out the photo gallery here: https://iwphotographic.pixieset.com/curiositycarnival2017byianwallman/.

9,400 curious people came into town to take part, and more than 400 researchers were involved.
