The Playhouse, in High Street, will host Ministry Of Science Live on June 17 at 3pm.

The show has earned rave reviews up and down the country, proving a family-favourite day out, whether you are a science fanatic or not.

Science geeks, young and old, will enjoy this fast-paced celebration of science, which is accompanied by the booming voice of X-Factor narrator Peter Dickson.

Work from the greatest brains in biology, chemistry and physics – including Sir Isaac Newton, Thomas Edison and Alexander Flemming – will be delved into, offering an educational yet entertaining experience for youngsters with a passion for science.

A team of top-class scientists will lead the show, sharing their expertise in everything from hydrogen bottle rockets to space travel.

In this anarchic show packed with thrills, spills and surprises, the experts will assemble a hovercraft on stage, and someone will be launched from a human canon.

Tickets for this explosive and dramatic show, priced £12.50-48, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or online via
