The Greatest Show Un-Earthed

Special event

Thu 20th February, Woodhorn Museum

10.30am, 1pm and 3pm, Booking Essential (FULLY BOOKED)

Science meets circus at Museums Northumberland during February half term.

Flint the Rock Showman and Flossie the archivist will take you on a theatrical journey that explores 4.5 billion years of Earth’s geological past to find out what it can tell us about our future.

Flint and Flossie will bring their Cabinet of Curiosities to discover how Earth has changed over time and what is to be found under our feet with an amazing display of rocks, minerals and fossils.

This hands-on performance will entertain and inspire all ages and encourage you to gain a deeper knowledge of our world. The performance is followed by a chance to talk to Flint and Flossie and to explore the curiosity booth and rock cabinets for yourself.

Flint the Rock Showman is played by Steve Cousins, a geologist and circus ringmaster at Let’s Circus. Flossie is played by Helen Averley, circus artist and collector. The rocks and minerals are from their personal collections, Newcastle’s Common Room and The Mining Institute.
