Presented by John Hinton

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.
