Next month the Under Ground Theatre is offering a fun, interactive journey through science.

On Saturday August 22 at 10am, local author and puppeteer, Richard Robinson will be showing a collection of experiments designed to make science fun for children and help them to learn some interesting facts along the way.

The morning show will be ideal if your children constantly ask you questions that seem unanswerable such as: Why does the toast always land butter side down? Why is ‘black’ sometimes actually ‘white’? How can a bottle blow up a party balloon?

Then Richard will be on hand to give them all the answers.

He is best known for building and voicing puppets for the television series Splitting Image, The Riddlers, Dizzy Heights, and Puddle Lane.

He also played Bungle in the 1994-1995 revival of the children’s series Rainbow.

Richard visits schools and festivals with science cabaret acts and has written nearly twenty children’s books on science.

In 2005 he founded the Brighton Science Festival, now one of the biggest in the UK.

This great event is free of charage. Doors open at 9.30am and the coffee bar will be open from 9.30am.

Children must be accompanies by an adult. There will be a book signing session from 11.30am onwards and a variety of Richard’s informative books will be available for sale throughout the morning.
