    Science Mysteries of Christmas

    Christmas – we all know it’s not just toys, turkey and tinsel. There’s cheer, merriment and goodwill besides. But most of all, Christmas is a time of mystery and wonder. For instance, ever wondered how Santa gets around the world so quickly on Christmas Eve? And how exactly does he manage to squeeze himself down a narrow chimney? Join us as we look at these and other Christmas conundrums and propose just a few scientific solutions of our own?

    Merry Sniffmas

    Christmas is a feast for all the senses and here at W5 we think nothing evokes Crimbo more than a good whiff of spiced apple and old socks. Well, maybe not the socks but how about Brussels sprouts and gingerbread? Or cinnamon and candle smoke? What’s your favourite seasonal scent? Test your olfactory nerves and remember Christmases gone by with our bespoke test of Christmas smells. Do you know your cranberry from your clove? Don’t ignore your nose this Christmas. Join us and have a very Merry Sniffmas.

    Please note, these floor shows will run on selected dates from Saturday 30 November to Sunday 5 January. Please see staff on arrival for show locations & times.
