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.

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.
