Event description

Description

A little after midnight on 2nd September 1666, a spark from a baker’s oven set the capital alight in a raging inferno that lasted for four days. The fire spread rapidly through the narrow streets of London, jumping between overhanging houses and with a strong wind fanning the flames. Londoners fled the city while the streets flowed with molten lead and pigeons fell from the sky. Science Oxford presents a storytelling experience of the Great Fire of London where the narrative is accompanied by live fire demonstrations that explore the science of heat, flame and combustion.

“Loved the combination of narrative and practical demonstration – drama and science.”

“My son stopped fidgeting and actually watched.”

“It was just brilliant.”
