We have made the difficult decision to cancel The Big Bang @Solent event due to take place on the 30th April due to concerns following the increase in confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK.  The unique nature of The Big Bang Fair - an indoor, hands-on interactive event for over 1500 young people and their teachers alongside over 70 exhibitor stands - means that we feel this is the most appropriate decision to take at this time.

At present, all other EBP South and Basingstoke Consortium events are going ahead as planned.  We will continue to monitor and review each event as it draws closer.
