Stowmarket Mad Science Festival, held at Cedars Park Community Centre, was organised by Stowmarket Town Council and supported by Anglian Water.

Sarah-Jayne Thomas, event organiser, said “We were absolutely thrilled to see so many young people enjoying science, our thanks to Anglian Water for making it possible.”

Stowmarket Town Mayor, Dave Muller, added “It was absolutely superb. I spoke to many children and their parents and all the feedback has been very positive indeed.”
