Explosive science show Brainiac is heading to Wycombe

SKY One 's zany science programme, Brainiac: Science Abuse is being staged live in theatres across the UK and is coming to the Wycombe Swan tonight (March 28).

After five years and more than 60 programmes following the Brainiac boffins' explosive voyage of scientific discovery, they've decided to take to the road and bring their madcap brand of experimentation to a venue near you, in an anarchic show that's set to blow audiences' minds.

Is it possible to create a perfect storm in a theatre? How much oxygen and helium do you have to ignite to make a really loud bang? What is Britain's loudest word? All these baffling scientific mysteries will be solved, and for added excitement, caravans will explode and microwaves will be blown up.

There are 22 daredevil experiments with lots and lots of messy audience participation in a breathless ride through the wild world of the weird and wonderful that will tackle spectacular experiments in a quest for knowledge.

Dr John Kilcoyne, the Principal Lecturer from the University of Sunderland, and known to viewers of the television series and one of the chief Brainiac boffins, is the live show's Science Consultant and will make surprise guest appearances at some venues.

There are two performances of this amazing show, at 5.30pm and 8.30pm and you can book your tickets now by ringing the Wycombe Swan Box Office on 01494 512000.
