Each ticket grants six people free entry to the science centre, plus a Planetarium show, and free travel

Bristol’s biggest science centre and educational charity has launched a city-wide “treasure hunt” in the run-up to its reopening on July 2.       

We The Curious is working with community partners across Bristol to offer 80 group tickets to visit the science centre on Millennium Square free of charge.

Special silver tokens - or ‘Curiositickets’ - have been hidden all over the city for people to find.  

From community centres to city farms and even hidden on buses, the 80 tickets are hidden in some of Bristol’s most well-known spots.

Each Curiositicket grants six people free entry to We The Curious, plus a Planetarium show, and free travel via First Bus to and from the venue. 

By hiding them all over the city, the science centre hopes to reach people who may not have had a chance to visit the centre before.

Bryony Roberts, Content Director for We The Curious said: “We’ve created these Curiositickets in the hope that we can provide a little surprise and fun for people in Bristol to get stuck into, as they search for our silver tokens all over the city. 

“Being accessible and inclusive is really important to us, so ahead of our reopening we wanted to create a bit of a buzz with an activity that was open to everyone, whether you’re We The Curious fans or have never heard of us before.

“It’s also a great way to say thank you to everyone who supported us during our closure, including our brilliant partners, and those who’ve taken part in our Out and About events. It’s really meant a lot, so it feels right to celebrate reopening with our city. 

“It’s the perfect way to get curious about your local area, and even explore a new part of Bristol you’ve not been to yet. We can’t wait to welcome the Curiositicket winners through our doors in our reopening year!” 

We The Curious reopens its doors on July 2, with an opening celebration planned for July 6. General tickets will go on sale in June.
