Brainiac Live! Science Abuse to make W/E debut

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

DUE TO popular demand, Brainiac Live! Science Abuse, the show that laughs in the face of science, is to make its West-End debut at the Palace Theatre, where it runs from July 18 to August 17, 2013.

Based on the multi award-winning Sky TV show, Brainiac Live! will, according to the press release, bring mischief and mayhem to the West-End.

Audiences can expect exploding dustbins, combusting microwaves, Airzooka challenges and live daredevil stunts as the show attempts to answer some of science’s hotly debated questions.

For example: How much oxygen and helium do you have to ignite to make a really loud bang and what are the things you can run through?

Andy Joyce, No.1 Brainiac and presenter of the show, says: “I’m so excited about presenting the show in the West-End after doing over two hundred and fifty performances around the UK and I can’t wait to see the amazement on the children’s faces, when they see our daredevil experiments!”

Since 2008, Brainiac Live! Science Abuse has played to packed houses across the UK in theatres, holiday resorts and Science Festivals, blowing the minds of over 400,000 children and their families. In 2010, the show headlined the Big Bang Fair, the UK’s leading science-engagement event attended by over 55,000 young people.

Brainiac Live! Science Abuse is presented by Dan Colman and Rupert Gavin for Incidental Colman.

Tickets: £15 – £25, Premiums £25, Family Tickets from £50. All are available from the box office on 0844 755 0016 or online at www.nimaxtheatres.com/.
