In this interactive family show for ages 7 upwards, we follow the adventures of Corry the Coronavirus who travels around the world causing chaos and misery until she is brought under control by a team of Super Scientists.

Along the way we learn how and why viruses emerge, what happens in a pandemic, and how we can beat such threats in the future.

You’ll play Jason and the R-Go-Noughts, and make your own batty poems.

Professor Tom Solomon CBE, who appears regularly on BBC Breakfast, is Director of the UK’s Emerging Infections Research Unit at the University of Liverpool, and an award-winning science communicator. His last show "Roald Dahl's Marvellous Medicine" had a complete sell out run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017.

'Solomon captivated his audience – clear, accessible, moving... amazing' (Guardian).
