The biggest summer of fun in the last 400 years at The Dockyard!

Summer Fun at The Dockyard on Saturday 28th July – Saturday 11th August 2018

Starting from the 28th July, join Doc. Yard with his unique take on science fun. This year, Doc. and his able assistant Bunsen are trying to detect elements that are difficult to see and smell, but with help from the audience, hands on experiments will show Doc’s assistant Bunsen and everyone what gases feel like!

From helium, gases in air and even the ones made by humans – Doc and Bunsen look at the science behind them this summer with interactive fun and Bunsen’s hilarious tricks on Doc – this may include a whoopie cushion!

Don’t miss out on the final experiment where Doc and Bunsen will perform the Big Bang experiment too! When we say a big bang – we mean a BIG BANG!

And if that wasn’t enough for family fun this summer, the Pirates will also be back at The Dockyard from the 28th July taking over HMS Gannet! Captain Knotbeard and the rest of his crew will be joining The Dockyard’s biggest summer ever for its 400th birthday with an enormous beach equipped with deck chairs and buried treasure ready for those sandcastles to be made! Storytelling will be daily, and the lower decks of HMS Gannet will show what life as a pirate was like!
