“Musical Squares” 14th Nov

The Friends of St Andrew’s are delighted to bring you Musical Squares, a ‘fun extravaganza’ which explores, in an entertaining way, many aspects of sound and hearing in the human and animal kingdoms.

Topics covered include: the effects of sound on people, sound production, sound waves, acoustical illusions, musical instruments and how they work, recognition of sounds, ‘lie-detection’ tests for deafness – and many other topics.

The presentation – which provides education through entertainment – is lavishly illustrated throughout with visual demonstrations, sound effects and on-the-spot experiments – some of which involve audience participation!

It is suitable for all ages and requires no previous knowledge of the subject whatsoever.

In 2004, Mike & Wendy were awarded the “Kelvin Medal and Prize” by the Institute of Physics – for their contribution to the Public Understanding of Physics over many years of lecturing together.

Musical Squares was recently presented at the Cheltenham Music Festival Society, to great reviews.
