(Note that the competition has moved from a Friday to a Wednesday).

Find out more about the competition, and how to enter, here.

This year we are working in collaboration with the Big Bang Eastern to hold a joint event. We strongly encourage you to enter the Big Bang if you are also entering our competition (follow link and click "Book places to attend"). All the judging will be done in parallel so you stand a greater chance of winning some prizes and can effectively attend both competitions on the same day.

We look forward to seeing you in June!
