The hunt is on!

It’s 150 years since the then known chemical elements were arranged into a table. To celebrate, we’ve placed posters about the chemical elements around Norwich! Can you track down the hidden elements in our periodic table trail?

A tale of two trails:

The City Trail features 23 element posters around Norwich city centre. Discover how the chemical elements are found all around us and learn how they’re used in different places – you’ll see the city in a completely new light!

The Fringe Trail features 8 element posters on the Norwich Research Park involving its six Park Partners. Find out more about the ground-breaking research taking place there! Head to Centrum for the start of the trail.

Pick up a map from The Forum, discover all the element displays, complete the trails, entry the prize draws and collect a certificate at the Festival between 18–26 October. Plus, come and see the giant periodic table in The Forum!
