Five things to do today...

The Sun: Late

Tonight the Science and Industry Museum, Manchester, will burst with solar science, poetry, music, crafts, talks and an inflatable planetarium, in another of their adult only special events.

Talks and demonstrations include journalist Linda Geddes explaining how sunlight is crucial to health and happiness. Plus you can get up close with exotic sun dwelling animals, make a sundial, find out about the promise and perils of geoengineering and grab a drink from the bar.

The Sun exhibition will be open throughout the evening with tickets at just £4 as part of the late event. See www.scienceandindustrymuseum.org.uk. Photo: Jody Hartley
