Description
This wacky show brings the multi-award winning Horrible Science series to life. It has been performed with great success all over the UK Europe, China and the Middle East. Each show consists of demonstrations and readings from the books and quizzes. The show is constantly being updated by material from latest books so it is never the same from one year to the next.

From Blood, Bones and Body Bits to Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens, these books cover every subject known to science. Nick Arnold has been writing stories since he was a boy and even then his favourite topics were horrible goings-on, the more gruesome the better.

This show is noisy; very, very funny and guaranteed to please! Find out more at www.nickarnold-website.com

Please note Tickets bought online to be picked up at the box office will be available to collect on the door of the event.
