Download Event to Calendar

Wednesday 5 - Friday 7 August
Performances three times daily at 11.00am 1.00pm and 3.00pm

Tickets: £6 adults / £4 concessions

A visual story for family audiences of how man’s endeavour, inventiveness and ingenuity aspires to replicate the wonder of nature. 

Godiva AWAKES to take two young imagineers on an adventurous discovery of the secrets of flight. Entering the fantastical world of aviation they meet some inspirational inventors; Leonardo da Vinci – ‘a man of unquenchable curiosity ‘; the Montgolfiere brothers, architects of the imagination and Coventry’s own Sir Frank Whittle, inventor of the turbo jet engine .

Stretch your wings and join them all to witness a menagerie of mechanical machines defy gravity – see a kite soar, a hummingbird hover, the first hot air balloon rise, a turbo jet zoom, a rocket launch and finally a human fly!

Beautiful, magical and inspirational – a visual delight to stir the child in all of us. 

Recommended age from 4 years and upwards. 
Concessions - age 4-16, and age 60+. Under 4s free
