A little after midnight on 2nd September 1666 a spark from a baker’s oven set the capital alight in a raging inferno lasting four days. The fire spread rapidly through the narrow streets jumping between overhanging houses, a strong wind fanning the flames. Londoners fled the city while the streets flowed with molten lead and pigeons fell from the sky.

In this new show, Science Oxford presents a storytelling experience of the Great Fire of London where the narrative is accompanied by live fire demonstrations which explore the science of heat, flame and combustion.
