Event details

Why does a whip crack? How does lightning make a noise?  What makes a cannon go boom?

Explore how sounds are made in this noisy Science Theatre show.

Warning: this show includes flashing lights and noisy sounds such as loud bangs which can be heard outside the theatre.

​The Science Theatre is equipped with an analogue induction loop.
 
During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
