Lara is taking Theatre of Science on the road, bringing science storytelling sessions to Deer Shed Festival's 10th anniversary celebration. The family-friendly event featuring music, arts and science takes place between 26th–28th July.
Join Theatre of Science and Hoglets on an adventure to find a new planet! Using drama, astronomy, science experiments and a lot of imagination, we’ll journey beyond the solar system in this workshop to explore where humans might live next.
Lara Stafford left Manchester University in 2003. “Ooh, Manchester’s great for physics isn’t it Miss?” say her A-level science students. “Yes”, she replies. They do not need to know she studied Drama the first time round. Eventually a love of physics and a desire to have a job led her to a Science degree and she trained as a teacher. Now with first class honours in both theatre and science and a wasted youth spent working in The York Dungeon, she delivers projects intended to inspire young people towards careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
Hoglets Theatre Company run drama and storytelling classes that bring storytime to life – taking drama performance skills and applying them to the telling of tales. They also produce original theatre shows for babies, toddlers and their parents or carers.
The Festival of Ideas was created to enhance York’s reputation as a city of ideas and innovation through offering the highest calibre of public events to local, regional and visitor audiences.
