Festival Shows

We love festivals! Music, science, folk…….. Big or small, we’ve done it all.

We are regulars at the Green Man Festival, Blue Dot, Hong Kong Science Festival, Cheltenham Science Festival and Camp Bestival.

We offer the following on stage shows for family audiences:

giant bubble childBubbles and Balloons

We explore the best bits about bubbles and balloons.  From blowing them up to bursting them; discover all the amazing things you can do in between.  Can you catch a bubble? Make it last forever or make it square? Can you stick a pin in a balloon or turn it into a helicopter?

Cartoon Science

Does Gravity only work when you look down? What shape will you leave behind if you run into a solid wall? And are bananas really that slippery? We look at the scientific laws found in cartoons and see if they apply to us in the real world.

Wendy with headphonesMusic to your Ears

How do we make sounds, record sounds and see sounds? This fun show explores the basics of sound and noise, and how we can use technology to bring a new dimension to music!

It’s Only Water!… Or is it?

It’s Only Water!… Or is it? is an exciting, interactive science show that explores all the amazing properties of water. The show will be brought to you in the form of a trick and quiz show that involves students and teachers.

The XX Factor

Discover 6 women in STEM who have done incredible things. From space to maths to music, this exciting presentation has lots of audience interaction and is sure to inspire your students in STEM.



If you can’t see something to suit your needs, we can adapt many of our shows to suit a festival audience. Give us a call on 02920 876 884 and we can discuss your requirements.
