All ages welcome. Email to book your ticket or to arrange an accessible tour.

About the speaker

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.
