The Science Express!

May Half Term - Wednesday 29th & Thursday 30th May 2024

The Science Express!
Bring the whole family along to laugh at Zap and Boing, the clumsy scientists, as they try out some wacky experiments. Packed full of slapstick comedy, chemical reactions and mayhem - its set to be another sell-out show!

The performance is brought to you by the wonderful Radtastic Entertainment who also brought you Little Red Riding Hood and Jolly Roger’s Swashbucklin’ Train Ride.

The fun begins at Tunbridge Wells West Station where our scientists conduct some dazzling experiments. We climb aboard the Science Express to begin our journey to Erridge station - Zap and Boing handing out activity packs along the way. 

Upon arrival at the station, everybody will make their way on to the platform where everybody will make slime. 

We will board the Science Express once again to travel back to Tunbridge Wells West, Zap and Boing handing out treats along the way.
