Chap Hop and Cheese

23 November 2019

A night of chap hop, science and cheese!


Book Online for this fantastic event!

mascot Telescope Right

Last September, a team of researchers from the Bern University of Arts played different musical genres to cheese for a 6-month period. Their findings suggested that Hip-hop gave the cheese an especially funky flavour.

Join us as we recreate the experiment by exposing a buffet of different cheeses to the ultimate Chap Hop show. Our ‘homage to fromage’ will then be consumed by the audience and ratings given to our scientists.

So grab a cheese knife (one must always use the correct implement for the task) and enjoy a selection of dairy and non-dairy options!

£15 per person (including cheese buffet)

Please Note

This is a music gig in the heart of the exhibition. There will be a small amount of seating to the rear of the galleries, but this is a standing/dancing gig.

Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq

With banjolele in hand, Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. has been delivering his own brand of musical humour across the UK since 2016. His performances charm audiences with a unique mix of original material, singalong classics and a sharp vintage wardrobe.

Professor Elemental

Fed on a diet of pureed swan and old-fashioned British madness, he grew into one of the least respected Professors to ever be turned away from every London society (including the cub scouts and the WI). Undeterred, he continues to work on inventions with the aid of his trusty butler Pugh and his Augmented Oran tang Geoffrey.

Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer

From deepest darkest Surrey, and with a decade of gentlemanly catterwalling under his belt, Mr. B brings you Chap-Hop, re-acquainting Hip-Hop with the Queen’s English from whence it came. His legendary live recitals have earned him plaudits, largely from top shelf gentlemen’s quarterlies.




– Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event

Due to the use of mild profanities in the lyrics and the serving of alcohol, there is a requirement that all ticket holders need to be 16+. Anybody looking younger than 16 will be asked to provide ID –and the name of their face cream ;)–

– What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There are 400 free car parking spaces available on site. We are happy to call taxis for people and there is a bus stop to the 54 route within a few minutes walk of the Centre.

– What can/can’t I bring to the event?

We have a café and bar serving a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as snacks and hot drinks.

The National Space Centre – 0116 261 0261. This phone line is open Monday to Friday 09:00 – 17:00

– Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Either a printed ticket, or a ticket on your phone or tablet (we like the non-printing option, it is better for the planet).
