Manchester City of Science commission
Eureka Edinburgh were commissioned by the University of Salford to create a pop-up street theatre show that told the story of Alan Turing for Manchester’s “Science in the City Festival” as part of European City of Science, Manchester. Eureka Edinburgh created an amazing show “Our Friend Alan” that not only shared Turing’s life as a computing scientist, but told the story of Turing as a person. This moving piece of street theatre really pushed the boundaries of science communication: performative, emotive, and challenging societal attitudes, whilst engaging people in the scientific process. Eureka Edinburgh are a wonderful company to have worked with.

Cast of Storybook Week 2019
PR – OLIOLI Children’s Museum
We met Craig and Nicola thanks to the Abu Dhabi Science Festival - and we can't emphasize enough how incredibly lucky and blessed we feel to have met them. In a professional capacity, we have engaged with them on a major event (OliOli® Carnival) and professional development training. And in both instances, they blew past our REALLY high expectations (given their reputation precedes them).
We can write pages about their incredible passion and commitment, conscientiousness and high integrity, tremendous creativity, pure joyfulness, phenomenal and inspiring work ethic, efficiency, an amazingly strong sense of ownership, and their ability to put in EVERYTHING they have into the project at hand. Each one of those positive comments can be backed through multiple examples of how they conducted themselves. Throughout the course of our engagement – they made us feel like they were permanent members of our team. And thanks to all of their tireless efforts, we had a remarkably successful event which lasted 9 days, entailed 20 new activities, involved training over 35 students (who didn’t have any facilitation experience), and catered to thousands of visitors from different cultures and nationalities.
We couldn’t put in words how much we would recommend to anyone to work with Craig and Nic. We truly hope to have a very long engagement with them in our journey.
