About Live Science Shows

Professor Egghead returns this summer with two fantastic new live science shows and two fun-filled puppet shows!

There are sick starfish, poorly plaice and turtles with terrible tummies. How do animals get better without medicine? Our new show 'Medi-sea-n' explores how marine animals deal with illness.

In 'Ro-bish Removals', Professor Egghead uses robots to show how we can remove plastics from the ocean, preventing them from damaging marine wildlife.

Lost! returns this summer with Craig the Crab and we have an all new puppet show Escape!, with Percy Puffin trying to make his way from his burrow to the safety of the sea.
