Future Fest 2015

Written by on 28th September 2015

Future Fest, brought to you by the University of Lincoln, will showcase past, present and future technological innovations and research.

It’s taking place at The Engine Shed on Thursday 8 October.

The exhibition has been created to acknowledge the 30th anniversary of the Back to the Future trilogy, and to celebrate technological advancements in key themes of robotics, games computing, media, art and science.


Visitors to the Engine Shed will see first-hand the technological revolution over the past 30 years and will also be given the opportunity to engage in a wide range of activities including virtual reality gaming, 3D printing, state-of-the-art robotics and interactive media.

Jason Bradbury, of Channel 5’s Gadget Show and who is now a Visiting Professor will also star on the day with his replica DeLorean time machine to discuss the possibility of real time travel.

To find out more about the event I spoke to the University of Lincoln Internal Communications Manager Dave Prichard, and you can listen to our chat below.
