About the event

In a first of its kind event, Cambridge Wide Open Day offers a unique insight into the city’s world-renowned science and technology. To top off the day, all participants are invited to a garden party reception at the o2h co-work labs at Hauxton House, Mill SciTech Park from 4.00 pm.

Cambridge Wide Open Day is an interactive day that encourages inclusive collaboration which is vital for the region’s further expansion and growth. It also welcomes visitors from outside Cambridge, around the country, and across the world that are curious to see what’s going on ‘inside’ Cambridge.
