Izzy's Incredible Adventure
Meet Izzy. She’s on an adventure to see a friend, but needs lots of help to get there! Can you help her?
In this show, Izzy and your audience will discover different kinds of transport together to get across land, sea and air.
What types of shape make a boat float the best? Do you know how a hot air balloon flies? Explore Izzy’s explosive rocket, and ride a real life hovercraft! This show involves and excites the whole audience, investigating the way we travel and explaining the science behind transport. The show is regularly booked in combination with our other primary school shows.
Izzy’s Incredible Adventure is suitable for ages 3-7, or reception years to year 4, as well as for festivals and events with families and young children. The show duration is between 40 to 60 minutes long.
