Animals and humans - 10 September 2018 to 21 December 2018

Our new animals and humans show sets the children the challenge of designing a new animal. By completing challenges that look at subjects such as skulls, habitats, grouping of animals and food chains/webs they win the chance to build a new animal. Highly interactive and engaging, this show is great fun.

Light and sound - 14 January to 5 April 2019
