This hour-long performance brings together stacks of audience participation and some mind-bending mathematical concepts, all delivered in an accessible fashion for children & their parents. The show includes some of Kyle’s favourite demos that he has developed in recent years, including: T-shirts of hanoi, a fibonacci based folk song, the paper folding world championships, and an attempt to fit all of the UK’s rice stocks onto a single chess board (this part usually fails, but he gives it a good go.)
Whether you’re a mathsphile or a mathsphobe, this show brings joyous number-play and family entertainment together in a way that truly has something for everyone.
There are two performances, 1-2pm and 4-5pm, and booking is essential. Please book tickets for all people attending the event, both children and accompanying adults. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
