In 1290, a Welshman, William Cragh, was hanged in Swansea by the Anglo-Norman Lord of Gower – but that wasn’t the end of the story… This exhibition uses the strange tale of William Cragh as the starting-point for exploring medieval Swansea, drawing on the major new research project City Witness: Place and Perspective in Medieval Swansea (www.medievalswansea.ac.uk), including maps, digital visualisations and artefacts from the Swansea Museum collection.
Free activities and workshops linked to the exhibition will run on Friday June 20 and Saturday June 21: please contact the Museum for more information.

Methane bubbles are set alight to make fireballs, liquid nitrogen freezes flowers, hydrogen balloons explode and rockets are fired into the audience. Stand well back and cover your ears – theatre just got dangerously exciting! Two futuristic science students race against time to prove their knowledge of energy. With help from the incredible virtual lab-assistant, i-nstein, and a steampunk workshop full of gadgets and chemicals, they explore, experiment and explode anything and everything they can find, building to a breath-taking climax as they demonstrate all forms of energy, live on stage, in under five minutes. Produced by the world famous Science Museum in London, this show is suitable for everyone aged 7+. ‘I imagine that physics teachers everywhere will be blessing the Science Museum for promoting their topic so imaginatively and entertainingly.’ (allinlondon.co.uk) ‘Fast, furious and dangerously exciting!’ (Wanstead & Woodford Guardian) ‘Loads of explosive experiments, fun facts and big bangs.’ (Family Travel Times blog) sciencemuseum.org.uk/energyshow Twitter @sciencemuseum #Energyshow Running times Mid-week matinees / schools shows: 75 minutes (no interval) Evening shows / weekend matinees: 90 minutes (plus interval) Tickets : Adults £15.50, Child £12.50, Family Ticket (4) £50.00, Schools £10.00 (exempt from the 50p Restoration Fund contribution)
