This event has been and gone.

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Join us for TWO separate events at the Royal Gunpowder Mills this Easter. Take part in Space Explorer from April 4th– 11th, and then return for Easter Explorer week from the 12th – 19th.

As a Space Explorer, you will be delighted in the Mad Lab, watching Professor Nitrate demonstrate the very best explosive science. Throughout the day, join the Professor’s assistants in interactive space-based science experiments! Make sure to also visit the Creative Zone to create your own Solar-System Crown, and enjoy our astronaut activities!

For all you Easter Explorers, Professor Nitrate will be back with more explosive science, but the assistants will be there to teach you about the science behind every-day nature: discover the Japanese art of Hapa Zome (leaf dye), learn about chemical reactions with fizzy eggs, and build a bird feeder! Don’t forget to bring your bravest animal toy to try out the Stuffed Animal Zip Wire!

All these fantastic activities are included in your entry ticket. You can explore our award winning exhibition, theatre and armoury too and opt for a 40 minute guided land train tour to view 300 year of hidden heritage and watch for nature.

The Royal Gunpowder Mills opens its doors DAILY between April 4th and April 19th for SPACE EXPLORER and EASTER EXPLORER. Gates open 10am. Pre-book your tickets through our Eventbrite page or buy tickets on the day subject to availability
