The discovery of the Higgs Boson was one of the greatest and most exciting discoveries of science – could you have made it too? Join the hunt for the higgs in this highly interactive comedy show where you the public are in charge of the Large Hadron Collider. Using a smartphone or tablet you will have direct access to LHC data, and complete interactive games to help solve problems and analyse data. A unique, entertaining, and very hands-on show.

Please bring a charged smartphone or tablet with you!
