A microfiche reader, with 'the library of fake news' written on the screen

Library of Fake News

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

With fake news making headlines over the last 12 months, how do we sort fact from fiction, when media channels keep contradicting each other? Pay a visit to MediaCity’s Library of Fake News in Salford and get ready to get real. Discover how the truth died a death in the public eye. Find out why misinformation could mean that now more than ever, seeing is no longer believing. Learn how to take the spin off news stories, and reveal what’s really there. When it comes to quirky, interesting days out, the Library of Fake News is an experience you just can’t trump.

This event has closed earlier than previously advertised. apologies for any inconvenience.
