Roll up, roll up! What futuristic marvels amused the Victorians and Edwardians? A band of time-travelling professors present the cutting edge of science and technology from over a century ago. Be amazed and diverted by our phonograph, magic lantern, ‘animated photographs’, and chemical and electrical experiments from the 1800s. How have attitudes to innovation and the future changed since then? And how far has the Victorian blend of education with entertainment stayed with us?
Suitable for ages 12+. Funded by a ‘Care for the Future’ grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
