WHAT you have got with John Hinton’s Ensonglopedia of Science is science fact meeting science comedy.

These two facets are seamlessly joined together as John takes his audience on a musical rollercoaster of fun and facts all wrapped up in song.

With this show which John described as a ‘jigsaw puzzle of a show’, he set himself the challenge of writing a song about science for every letter of the alphabet and even playing a musical instrument which begins with the same letter.

John as he states is ‘not a scientist’ but all his facts have been checked by real scientists to make sure he serves up science fact not science fiction.

He said: “I am not a scientist and have no qualifications.

"But I have got real life scientists to check the facts. At the end of the day I am a performer but I am a born again scientist.

“This show has allowed me to do my own scientific research and write a song for each of the subjects.

"By doing a song for each of the topics it means kids can enjoy the science and the songs.

Somerset County Gazette:

“I started by covering the subjects I wanted to talk about and then saw what letters of the alphabet were left.

"So if there was an 'O' level then I did it about octopuses.

“In a way we are all scientists who like to do experiments and work out our own theories.

“My favourite scientist would be Charles Darwin and my first solo show was about him.

"We will never know everything but we should always strive to learn more.

"I hope the children who come along to see the show get three things from it.

"One the enjoy the fun, learn some science they did not know before and see songs played on a variety of instruments.

“Secondly get they a factual nugget of science and thirdly I hope they go away with lots of questions which they can research themselves.”
