On the week of October 24 to 28 Queen Mary University will be hosting two family shows at its science education pod, known as the Centre of the Cell, in Newark Street, Whitechapel.

The first show, titled Gut Feeling, will not be for those of a queasy disposition as audiences follow the journey of one boy’s breakfast from his mouth to the cereal bowl.

The other event, taking place on the Tuesday and Friday, explores the medical history of the East End where families can discover how dangerous surgery was in 1915.

Those that attend the events will also be able to take part in a ‘pod session’ inside a cell-shaped pod suspended above the University’s Blizzard Institute laboratories.

The pod sessions teach visitors about the world of cells, the human body and the latest medical research.

The Centre of the Cell shows are recommended for children aged 7 onwards and their families.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
