It is to be hoped that things will return to normal and schools will not be using bubbles in autumn 2021 and spring, summer 2022. However, this is a fluid situation and so the Travelling Science Shows can be delivered either in a bubble setting, or in a normal one.
Below are the normal pricing and audience sizing. Please scroll down for what can be done if bubbles return. Please note that the Travelling Science Shows have been successfully delivered in schools in bubbles all the way through last summer term (April to July 2021) and a full risk assessment is available (see heading at top of this page).

COVID-19 Audience Size and Pricing (bubbles in place)
Adrian can adapt the audience size to fit in with your class bubbles or phases. This may mean more shows in a day, at no extra cost. The shows are shorter, so that more can be fitted into the day.
The shows are usually for two bubbles socially distanced within the hall. Get in touch with Adrian through the Contacts page and discuss your requirements.
Here’s an example: a KS2 show would normally be four classes. Instead, this could be split into two shows, each for two classes. The two classes involved could be socially distanced from each other within the hall. There would be no extra cost for this arrangement.
Single form entry schools
If you would like everyone to see a show during the day here is a possible model. Normally this would just require two shows: A KS2 show and a KS1 show. To facilitate bubbles, this could be changed to a KS2 show for Y5 & Y6 and a KS2 show for Y3 & Y4. Then a separate show for Y1 & Y2 (and possibly Reception as well, depending on bubble size). Three shows – but for the price of two (please note that the shows will be shorter to fit them into the school day). This has worked well during April-July 2021 when schools were under bubble restrictions.
Double form entry schools
In normal times each show would be four classes at most (for example Y3 and Y4). This could easily be split into two shows, one for each year group (one for Y3 and another for Y4). Again this would incur no extra cost. Two shows – but for the price of one (please note that the shows will be shorter to fit them into the school day). This has worked well during April-July 2021 when schools were under bubble restrictions.
