The life of a vet, rocket building and maths tricks will all be on the agenda at a Norwich Science Festival event to take place at Gresham's School's new technology centre.

The Holt school will host the festival 'satellite' event on Wednesday, October 27 at the Dyson Building, which was recently opened after having been funded by a £19 million gift from former pupil Sir James Dyson.
