Manchester City of Science commission
"Thunderbolts and Lightning were commissioned by the University of Salford to create a pop-up street theatre show that told the story of Alan Turing for Manchester’s “Science in the City Festival ” as part of the European City of Science, Manchester. Thunderbolts and Lighting created an amazing show “Our Friend Alan ” that not only shared Turing’s life as a computing scientist, but told the story of Turing as a person. This moving piece of street theatre really pushed the boundaries of science communication: performative, emotive and challenging societal attitudes, whilst engaging people in the scientific process. Thunderbolts and Lightning are a wonderful company to have worked with."

OliOli Children’s Museum
"Thanks to Thunderbolts and Lightning's tireless efforts, we had a remarkably successful event which lasted 9 days, entailed 20 new activities, involved training over 35 students (who didn’t have any facilitation experience), and catered to thousands of visitors from different cultures and nationalities. We couldn’t put in words how much we would recommend to anyone to work with Craig and Nic. We truly hope to have a very long engagement with them in our journey."
