This year’s Night of Discoveries plays with the theme of light and dark. Dozens of scientists from all faculties at Leiden University are working together with theatre makers, artists and musicians to create an incredible display.

The event promises to appeal to many different curiosities..

Did you know that Leiden astronomers recently discovered 300,000 new galaxies? Are you interested to know why it is so important for children’s development that they play outside in the sun? Or perhaps you want to know what the Dark Web actually look like? And why is a dark bedroom better if you want to lose weight?

During the Night of Discoveries, go on an excursion through the centre of Leiden, follow a debate in the Oude UB, listen to lectures in the Academy Building and enjoy the music and the many acts in the Hortus.

The full programme can be viewed here.


Tickets cost between €12.50 and €17.50 (plus a €2 booking fee) and can be bought here.
