Presented by John Hinton

Performance date and time
Friday, 27th April 2018
7:30 PM

A critically acclaimed one-man musical-comedy-science family show from the top-drawer storyteller John Hinton. 26 silly songs about science from A to Z. An hour of fun facts and mesmerising melodies to delight the inquisitive mind. John Hinton's (not actually a scientist) multi-award-winning musical comedy-shows about Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein and Marie Curie have delighted audiences internationally for the past eight years. Here, he brings his remarkably inventive, thoroughly entertaining storytelling to a fun-filled family show about science: 26 science-songs, one for every letter of the alphabet. Expect atoms, Big Bangs and cells. Expect X-rays, Y-chromosomes and plenty of zoology. Expect the unexpected. And expect it to rhyme. If you think that science is boring, think again: an absolute joy.

★★★★ 'Utterly accessible and engaging on multiple levels.' The Times

'Funny, inventive and generally an extremely good show. I think that everyone should see it and everyone would enjoy it.' Jo (11), Primary Times

★★★★★ 'Here's a treasure... something close to brilliance.' Libby Purves, The Times 'Science can rarely have been so fascinating and never so much fun.' The Stage: Must See Show
