Calling on all budding scientists, engineers and inventors, a science show with a bang is coming to Grantham Meres Leisure Centre this September.

The Ministry of Science Live is to perform as part of the Gravity Fields Festival at The Grantham Meres Leisure Centre on Wednesday, September 21.

Although the family show isn’t being performed until September, tickets are now on sale and are guaranteed to sell out fast.

The Ministry believe there’s a scientist, engineer or inventor in all of us.. Ministry of Science Live is not your ordinary science show - it comes with a bang and a whoosh.

Not only that but it also comes with a hovercraft built on stage, oh, and a human cannon, too!

This highly entertaining new production takes an anarchic approach to science communication whilst looking at the inventors and engineers who have shaped and inspired the modern world. From liquid nitrogen frozen flowers to hydrogen bottle rockets, from Buzz Aldrin to Virgin Galactic. From a cat food tin to the Hovercraft. From the discovery of methane to the invention of the battery.

Join the super talented presenters and the voice over of X Factor’s Peter Dickson as they take you on a journey using brilliantly designed demonstrations with a few loud bangs to lead the way.

The family show will be performed on Wednesday, September 21 at 6.30pm, with a schools version at 1.30pm on the same day. The show is suitable for everyone aged seven + and lasts approximately two hours with interval.

Tickets are priced at £12 each (£10 concessions) with a family ticket priced at £38. Tickets are available from The Guildhall Arts Centre Box Office, call 01476 406158 or visit www.guiildhallartscentre.com

This year’s Gravity Fields Festival, inspired by Sir Isaac Newton, is taking place from September 21 to 25.

This unique festival creatively explores the physical sciences through science, arts and heritage events and celebrates the area’s close links with one of the world’s greatest thinkers, Sir Isaac Newton.

Last year’s festival, organised by South Kesteven District Council attracted more than 60,000 visitors to the outdoor events, show and exhibitions over the five days.
