The next Inside Diamond event will take place in person on Saturday 28th October 2023 and the ballot for this event is now OPEN. These events are very popular and we have a limit on the number of visitors we can accommodate so we operate a ballot system to offer a fair allocation of spaces.
The ballot is now OPEN for submissions for the Saturday 28th October open day and the balllot will close at midnight on Sunday 1st October. Successful entrants will be notified within 48 hours of the ballot closing.
Our Inside Diamond open day events offer the chance for members of the public to visit the facility and see inside our particle accelerator and experimental laboratories.
