See what's on


If you're visiting us tomorrow (Friday 27 February), don't forget to head up to the Great Hall between 2-4pm for a special performance of 'Sound Mirrors' at the culmination of the #Decoded1914 project.

Should be a 'dazzling' sonic experience!

Great day today in the Science Maze reinventing First World War audio technologies as part of the 'War Workings' #Decoded1914 event.

It's on tomorrow as well and you're invited to join in. The 'Sonic Sleuth' is loads of fun - put the headphones on, point the device at someone and listen to their conversation. He he, sneaky!
