The steps we are taking to keep you safe

The safety of our visitors is very important to us, so we continue to take steps to ensure any visit to us at Centre of the Cell (or any visit from us to your school) is safe and Covid-secure.

Masks and social distancing

We continue to ask that visitors over the age of 11 wear a face covering while you are indoors at Centre of the Cell, and that you remain at least 1m from anyone outside your household group/school bubble.

Adapted shows

We have altered our shows to make them safer, including reducing volunteer interaction, and wiping clean any props handled by volunteers.

These changes have meant that we cannot run a number of our shows, and that others are slightly shorter in length.

We are keeping this under constant review, and will gradually start reintroducing our full catalogue of science shows as we feel it is safe to do so.

The shows currently available for booking and outreach are:


Enhanced cleaning regime

We continue to operate with an enhanced cleaning regime, including cleaning with anti-viral before and after any visit, the frequent use of hand sanitiser by visitors and staff, and the cleaning of all props between shows.

You can book for public sessions during August, or for school sessions in the Autumn term here. Please call us on 020 7882 2562 or email if you have any questions.
