PrintFest @ National Print Museum
Did you know that the development of modern science would not have been possible without the printing press?
Its invention led to the spread of scientific ideas across Europe throughout the 16th century.
On Sunday, 24th February - as part of Engineering Week - PrintFest gives you the opportunity to witness Gutenberg’s invention in action as our volunteers demonstrate the Museum’s collection.
Our panel of active retired printers and compositors will demonstrate the highlights of the Museum's collection and share stories of their time in the print industry. Printfest is suitable for all ages, with fantastic printing and craft activities available for all the family!
The event starts at 12:00 and runs until 16:00 and admission is free.
