Rachel Rayner presents:

Go on a glittering and whimsical journey to meet everyone’s favourite object in the universe, even if you haven’t heard of it: the tiny, tiny photon. Through humour, sequins and stars, uncover a bizarre piece of quantum mechanics which brings us both a sunset and the internet.

Science show meets fringe show in this amalgamated mess of exploration and discovery, best enjoyed with wine. There will be experiments, poetry, and a deep dive into some of the best features in the cosmos, including our wonderfully radiating selves.

This is science that sparkles on all levels – from the heliosphere to our own lithosphere – that will have you celebrating colours of light you’ve never even seen.

Just be ready for all the puns. This is enlightening light entertainment after all!


“Science explainer Rachel Rayner is blazing a trail with a new type of Fringe show” Clare Peddie, The Advertiser (4 stars)

“Part comedy, part physics lecture but entirely engaging, this show is a refreshing hybrid of art and science.” Rachael Mead, InDaily (4 stars)

“Whether you’re a gamma-ray-geek, x-ray enthusiast, or tend to side-step science, this show is sure to engage you.”– Helen Karakulak, On the Record (4 stars)
