Details

If you think science is boring... think again! This is science like you have never seen it before.

Designed for children and adults alike, Mark Thompson's Spectacular Science Show explores the strange and magical properties of matter with exploding elephant's toothpaste, vortex-generating dustbins, vanishing beakers and even howling Jelly Babies!

More recently he has turned his attention to the wider world of science and in 2016 debuted his sell-out Spectacular Science family show at the Edinburgh Fringe. The show has gone from strength to strength and played to sell-out audiences around the country.

With sell-out shows in 2016-2018 and awarded one of the "Top 20 Shows to See" by The List, Mark is touring his show at theatres and schools around the UK for a third year.

If you are trying to inspire your children for the first time, then this show will be perfect
