These were groundbreaking programmes that inspired a generation to become confident in mathematics and science. So there are many fans out there who will  be fascinated by the story hr has to tell in An Audience with Johnny Ball which plays the Auden theatre in Holt, Norfolk, on Friday 18th May.

He has much to discuss. You may not know for instance that Johnny wrote, produced and starred in five educational stage musicals between 1993 and 2003 playing to over 160,000 people every year and that his Millennium Dome Mind Zone Live show With Your Mind and Tomorrow's Engineering, Anything is Possible - sponsored by BAE Systems - sold-out throughout 2000
