A second 'That's non-sense' event has been scheduled for 26 September from 10.30-11.30am and you can book online now!

Think you see with your eyes and taste with your tongue? Prepare to be amazed, confounded and confused in this demo-packed tour of your brain as you find out your senses aren’t as simple as they seem…and even discover some senses you never knew you had!

Some of the experiments with Ginny require active participation at home! To join in, bring along something fruit flavoured (e.g. a piece of fruit, sweet, spoonful of jam) and something minty (e.g. mint sweet, or toothpaste). Some of the demos require two people, so please do bring along a friend. All children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult throughout the session.
