More information

We put on a number of fun events each year in our theatre specifically designed for family groups and a teenage / young adult audience. These talks are brought to life with demonstrations and audience interaction, covering a wide range of  topics from the science of fireworks to the mathematics of winning games. Whilst these talks are designed with a younger audience in mind, everyone is welcome to attend and will enjoy these shows!
