With the Ministry of Science, biology, chemistry and physics come together to create family entertainment.

Science comes to the stage at Weston's Playhouse this month as the Ministry of Science explores the work of inventors and engineers who have shaped and inspired the modern world.

From Sir Isaac Newton to Thomas Edison and Alexander Flemming, the show will take its audience on a journey aimed at inspiring everyone to enjoy science and go away excited and eager to learn more about everything around them.

Packed with thrills, spills and surprises, the show will deliver demonstrations from a team of first-class scientists that will include liquid nitrogen frozen flowers and hydrogen bottle rockets.

Someone will be launched from a human canon, and experts will assemble a hovercraft on stage.
