Congratulations to PG students Joe Spencer (QLM), Tobi Tsang (Theory), Olivia Kennan (Astro Alumni) and Chloe Green (UG) for a fantastic ‘Accelerate!’ Performance at the Winchester Theatre Royal.


The Accelerate! Particle Physics show was staged as part of 10 Days: Winchester Creative Collisions - a contemporary art festival, taking place across the city and online from 25 October to 3 November. The 10 Days website had 27,000 hits in a single day and the Accelerate! performance was very well attended.

PG and UG students Chris Frohmaier and Cait Percy also made a major contribution to the festival by leading ‘egg drop' collisions workshops with Stanmore, Weeke and Henry Beaufort Primary and Comprehensive schools.  The workshops - which taught students how to successfully land eggs from a height without breaking them - produced photos and evaluations, which were transformed into contemporary artwork by local artist Alex Hoare.

10 Days of events and exhibitions are located all around the city - including Winchester Cathedral - and can be viewed until Sunday 3 November.
