Techniquest

Live science show
30 minutes
Ages 5+
£2 per person (add-on to admission)

Join the Elf and Safety team as we show you the very latest in elf technology to help prepare Santa for what will be his busiest Christmas yet.

As if jetting around the entire world in just one night wasn’t enough to expect, it turns out that the number of children who need a visit this year is higher than ever. If we don’t take some drastic action, we could have the world’s worst delivery crisis on our hands!

Now, it’s down to the elves to come up with new clever ideas to help meet this challenge. But wait… some of those inventions look a bit odd to us, are they sure they’re safe? And what exactly has happened to Santa’s beard?!

Bring in the Elf and Safety team.

We’re going to need all your help to test out their plans to save Christmas this year — will you join us?

  • Age guidance: 5+

    Our live science show presenters adapt to the audience in front of them, so anyone from 5 to 95 should find plenty to engage with!

    You may not find the live demos as relevant for under-5s, but please check with staff before booking if you’re unsure.

  • Tickets

    Please note that every show ticket must be booked in conjunction with a valid admissions ticket. Availability is limited, so the best way to guarantee your space is to book in advance.

Location

Science Theatre

This is where we really bring science to life in front of your eyes.

Take a seat in our 90-person tiered auditorium, where our engaging presenter will show you some incredible experiments.

Depending on the show, they could involve ferocious fire, crazy chemicals, exciting explosions or ridiculous rocket launches!


Please note that we are able to accommodate 2 guests in wheelchairs per show.
