Ray and Rosemary Plevey delivered their renowned ‘Chemical Magic’ show for the 40th year running to sixth form students from across the West Midlands.

The show combines classic flash-bang chemistry demonstrations with the theatrical tricks and sleight of hand that are more often associated with magic shows than scientific lectures.

Organised by the West Midlands Chemistry Teachers Centre (WMCTC), in association with the Royal Society of Chemistry (through the P.F.Frankland Memorial Trust) and the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham, the lecture was attended by approximately 300 sixth form students from schools across the region.
