Giants of Science at the Victoria Theatre

From the people who brought you the hilarious – 6 Wives of Henry VIII, Living Spit are returning to Halifax, this time to the Victoria Theatre with their new comedy show on Thursday 28 February, 7:30pm.

Howard Coggins knows nothing about Science. Stu Mcloughlin knows even less.

Nevertheless, they have agreed to give a lecture on the subject, and after enlisting the help of the smartest scientific sages of the ages, that’s just what they aim to do.

They’re determined, like a pair of Atoms missing a couple of electrons, to stay positive. With jarring jokes, pitiful puppetry and the silliest of scientific songs, you can expect this raucous romp through the hilarious history of scientific stupidity to be… well, if nothing else, thoroughly entertaining.

It might even be… scien-triffic!

Tickets are available through the Victoria Theatre booking office on 01422 351158.

The Tour de Yorkshire begins on Thursday 2 May, with the race coming to Calderdale on Sunday 5 May, starting from the Piece Hall in Halifax and passing through Bradshaw that day.

EMBRACE THE DAY and make it a day to remember.

What can YOU do to promote Bradshaw Village as the Tour de Yorkshire passes  through?

If everyone on the route through the village decorates a piece of their house or part of the village, imagine what a spectacle we would have.
