Spectrum Drama Events at Biggleswade, Sandy, Potton, Dunstable and Flitwick Libraries

Come on all you bright sparks and hear the story of Michael Faraday, The Father of Electricity! The Great Man himself will explain what makes electricity. Hear about his life and adventures with the dreaded Lady Davy and his attempts to prevent the 1858 Great Stink of London. He will need enquiring minds and willing hands-on volunteers ages 5-11 to help explain how he helped shape our modern world.
