July 2019 marked the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission. The brilliant theatre company, Little Earthquake, curated a whole programme called Moonfest dedicated to all different kinds of space related fun and activities in and around Birmingham. As part of the festival, Little Earthquake commissioned LYNNEBEC to boldly go where (almost) nobody had gone before — behind the scenes at the Lapworth Museum of Geology.
LYNNEBEC developed an escape room style tour in the archives of the Lapworth where 99% of their artefacts are stored. Groups of 15 joined two aliens, Agent 1 and Agent B in the archives, to find three hidden artefacts to help them reboot their ship before the evil Despines caught them.
These artefacts included a section of 4.6 billion year old meteorite, a 700 thousand year old dinosaur egg and some of the most amazing crystal minerals.
