Norwich Science Festival Learning Programme

Free touring science play for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 - fully booked!

For 2024's Festival Learning Programme, Norwich Science Festival and the Science Arts and Writing (SAW) Trust are touring To the Moon and Back, a FREE brand-new interactive science play for primary schools.

Written by and starring Norfolk Panto legend and Britain’s Got Talent star, Ben Langley, this fantastic one-man play explains the science behind a trip to the moon and explores 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.

To the Moon and Back will also feature as part of the programme for Norwich Science Festival 2024.

If your school has not been able to secure a booking on the tour, there will be opportunities for families to enjoy the play during the Festival, from Saturday 17 - Saturday 24 February 2024. Keep an eye on our website, or sign up to our e-newsletter, for more information!
