Join us for this live science show to discover how we can make ice suddenly appear, what happens when we use laser vision, and the secret to creating webs for slinging around the neighbourhood.

Scientists… assemble!

  • 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.

  • Medical considerations

    If you have pacemaker or other implanted medical device, we will advise you to sit towards the back of the Science Theatre as one of the demonstrations generates an electrical field, which may affect some devices.

    If you are a wheelchair user and you also have pacemaker or other implanted medical device, unfortunately we would not be able to admit you to this particular show, as the wheelchair spaces in the Science Theatre are very close to the stage.

  • Other information

    There is a loud bang at the end of this show. Ear defenders will be given out before the show starts, and plenty of warnings will be given before the bang.

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.
