The hunt is on! In celebration of the International Year of the Periodic Table, 20 element info boards will be placed around the city. It’s 150 years since the Russian scientist, Dmitri Mendeleev, arranged all of the then known elements into a table. Can you track down the elements in our periodic table trail?

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