Ensonglopedia of Science

by John Hinton

A song about science for every letter of the alphabet. Expect atoms, Big Bangs, cells, DNA and plenty more besides. Expect the unexpected. And expect it to rhyme.

The Ensonglopedia of Science is the brand new show by John Hinton, multi-award-winning writer and performer of the Scientrilogy of musical comedies about Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein and Marie Curie. Peer reviewed by actual real life scientists from institutions including the University of Sussex, King’s College London, Royal Observatory Edinburgh, Natural History Museum, Cambridge University Botanic Garden, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and many more.

Nominated for a Primary Times Children’s Choice Award at Brighton Fringe Festival.


Suitable for ages 7 to adult (although younger siblings are welcome).

Funded by Arts Council England and the Science & Technology Facilities Council
