Event Details

Join BBC broadcaster Simon Mayo for an action packed event based on his books ITCH and ITCH ROCKS. Itch is an everyday school boy but his habit of collecting all the elements in the periodic table gets him in some seriously dangerous situations. When he uncovers some very powerful and highly radioactive elements his only gadgets are the elements in his rucksack. Find out how why he has no eyebrows, why you don’t want to get William Morris wallpaper damp and what happens when you release xenon gas in a car in this effervescent event.

Simon Mayo is best known for his BBC Radio 2 Drivetime show. He began writing three years ago, when he decided to create something for his son Joe, an avid reader and science nut. Having spent ten years interviewing scientists for his Radio 5 Live show he had plenty of ideas, and was soon consumed by ITCH and his story, waking up in the middle of the night to write.  Simon has worked on BBC radio since 1981 and runs a Book Club on  his Radio 2 show. He is also the co-presenter of "Kermode and Mayo's Film Review" on BBC  Radio 5 Live. In 2008, Mayo was recognized as the "radio broadcaster of the year" at the 34th  annual Broadcasting Press Guild Awards and the "Speech Broadcaster of the Year" at the Sony  Radio Academy Awards.
