Calling all wannabe spies – Agent Nitrate and the Spy Team have a mission for you! What is the mission? It is to join us for Agent Nitrate’s Spy-Tastic School Holidays which runs Saturday May 25 to Sunday June 2. Join us on Bank Holiday Weekend (25th, 26th, 27th May) when Agent Nitrate will arrange special training for you in forensics! Are you up for this? Can you keep a secret, and sift through the clues? A superb activity for all the family! * Each day we have a mix of science, learning and fun to capture the attention of any budding spy with a variety of activities. Visit our science stations to learn about dusting for fingerprints and writing your own secret messages! At the Creative Zone you can bring alive your own spy fantasy, with spy themed arts and crafts. Create a profile for a secret spy case, create an alias of your very own and make a rocket in case you need to make a quick escape! And there is more. Think you can hold out as a spy? Go searching for clues in our Indoor Night Vision Experience*. The question is - will you be able to get in and out before the explosion? The Spy Zone is where your brains are put to the test! Take part in our Photographic Memory Test and see just how much you can remember in a short amount of time. And dress up in Spy Clothes and take a selfie! And no trainee Spy is complete without having taken a quiz in the Rocket Vault, which is a glamorous room with real rockets and real Rocket scientists at hand to explain them to all ages and minds. This, after all was one of Britain’s Top Secret Research establishments in operation all through the Cold War era of spies! Agent Nitrate’s Spy-Tastic School Holidays takes place every day between May 25 and June 2. Gates open at 10am and the site closes at 5pm. With free parking, a café and picnic space, exhibitions and guided tours, lots of play space and lots to interest grown-ups too – this is an all-day, all-weather venue which packs a punch. Awarded Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence three years running. Tickets can be brought on the day however you can also pre-book your tickets online through our Eventbrite page
