For 2024’s Norwich Science Festival, SAW has teamed up with Norfolk Panto legend and Britain’s Got Talent star, Ben Langley, to take schools on an out-of-this-world adventure.

Made possible by an award from the People’s Postcode Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, schools will be given the opportunity to host a free performance in the lead up to the Festival next February. This brand new interactive science play entitled To the Moon and Back will explore the science behind a trip to the moon with KS1 and KS2 topics such as Earth, space, light and forces.

Tom wakes one morning and decides to build a rocket to fly all the way to the moon! Together with his AI friend, Squiffy, Tom embarks on a mission to reach the stars – a journey that will teach them both a lot about space and themselves.

Although the pre-festival tour for this one-man play is already fully booked(!), families can enjoy the play for free at the Forum in Norwich during the festival which will take place from the 17th – 24th of February, 2024.

Head over to the Norwich Science Festival website to find out more.

Ben will also be touring the play again after the festival until the end of British Science Week in March.  More details on costs and how to book soon!
