REAL SCIENCE OR JUST BANGS: THE SCIENCE OF FIREWORKS Explore the colourful and explosive world of pyrotechnics as Matthew deconstructs the science behind firework displays. He'll demonstrate how to create colours, different sound effects, shock waves and perfectly timed bursts in time to music, whilst ensuring that displays are safe. Fully customisable to fit your venue or event and featuring real indoor fireworks, this is an exciting and dramatic show featuring real science.

I perform comedy about science from the body in space to animal sex and can do sets from 5 minutes to 30. I produce a show called "Agony Auncles of Science" (www.agonyauncles.co.uk) where scientists and comedians solve real people's problems with science. We were listed in WIRED as the top science show to see on the Fringe.
Health and Safety advice for science festivals, high-profile stage shows and demonstrations, including reviewing risk assessments. I’ve won repeated commissions for my proactive approach at bridging the gap between what a performer wants to do and legal H&S obligations. My risk assessments and H&S processes are trusted as being thorough by both my firework and science communication colleagues. Previous clients include Cheltenham Festivals and Greg Foot.
THE FX FACTOR: Flames, smoke and pyro are used on TV, in films and on stage to add explosive atmosphere, but how do scientists go about making these effects? Join Matthew Tosh to find out and explore the amazing world of live special effects. Learn how to make a controlled column of fire or ankle hugging fogs without choking the audience and much more. Packed with demos, freezing jets, bubbling flasks, smoke and one or two explosions, this is the very serious science behind stage effects.
