North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers

In a dazzling display of inventive genius, Tom Mulholland presents the amazing discoveries and inventions that changed the world and created the 20th and 21st centuries in a Victorian Christmas Lecture in the Mining Institute’s lecture theatre. Free entertainment and learning for the whole family.

A highly interactive live show with lots of ‘whizzbangs’ and fun demonstrations illustrating how Tyneside’s inventive genii shaped the modern world. The shows are for families and there are lots of hands-on experiments for children to take part in. A great way to learn about science, engineering and the history of the region.
