British Science Week

The wonder of light...

As usual we'll be taking part in British Science Week in March 2015, with activities for all the family led by our intrepid Science volunteers: a 'Make it Fly!' weekend on 14-15 March and 'The Mystery of Time' on 21-22 March.

Here we come a-wassailing

Here’s a health to Newton’s apple tree!

Here’s a health to Newton’s apple tree!

'In Woolsthorpe in Lincolnshire lives a fine tree, an apple fell from it by sheer gravity..' Every year we wassail the trees in the orchard, and especially the Flower of Kent apple tree which inspired Isaac Newton and his great thoughts on gravity with cake and singing. Join us on Saturday 17 January at 12 noon.
