Calling wannabe spies – Agent Nitrate and team have a mission for you! The mission (if you choose to accept it) is to join us as open DAILY between May 26 and June 3 for spytastic family fun.

Professor Nitrate has fun for all the family this May Half Term as they embark on a mission to become Agent Nitrate!

There’s a fantastic mix of science and fun throughout each day. Join Agent Nitrate’s assistants in the Experiment Zone where you can try your hand at dusting for finger prints and writing your own secret messages.

The Creative Zone is where your spy fantasy really comes to life! Make your very own spy glasses, create your own disguise, create a profile for a secret spy case, create your very own alias as a spy and make your own rocket to test your skills at making a quick escape.

The Spy Zone is where brains are put to the test – Take part in our Photographic Memory Test and see just how much you can remember in a short space of time, Look the part in our spy dress up area and have a go at making a footwear impression.

Spies don’t usually have time to rest however this Bank Holiday Weekend (May 26 – 28) we’ve got some fantastic spy films for visitors to watch! Films are offered on a first come , first serve basis - More details to follow
