Our new magical family show is out on the road this summer, visiting libraries across the county. With a range of interactive demos, puzzles and lots of audience participation, explore the science behind some of our favourite magic tricks. There will be the mysterious diving ketchup, colour-changing liquids, disappearing water, and some very mysterious eggs. Come along for an entertaining and intriguing hour of science sorcery.
