The invisible & mysterious force of gravity is all around us and affects everything from atoms to galaxies. Tonight we look at scientific discovery using the medium of circus.

This fun and educational session will be presented by Dr Nate Adams (Research Scientist, Science Communication and Circus) and Stuart Priest (Director of Circus Skills York CIC)

It's been great to have Jill back in the office helping to put together some new events as well as rescheduling some that were unable to go ahead last year. Unfortunately, a few events that we had planned in the coming weeks have had to be adapted or postponed due to the pause to the ending of Coronavirus restrictions, but we will continue to do what we can when we can, and the speed of the vaccination programme gives us great hope that we can return to normal later in the summer.

What fun we had in York on Tuesday when Spice Military were admitted as interactive exhibits of the 20th Century Entertainment Corps at York Army Museum. We have a certificate to prove it! The museum has a range of exhibits from the 17th century right through to the story of Captain Sir Tom Moore, and we were honoured to meet Florence Nightingale too!

Ten Pin Bowling fans will be happy to hear that we have at last managed to get bookings at Sheffield on Wednesday and Leeds on Thursday. We'll be playing 'normal' bowling this month, but we will return to our usual pyramid scoring once indoor social contact restrictions are removed.
