Clitheroe Castle

Kitchen Science



Kitchen Science is a collection of activities that people can do at home, with everyday ingredients available from the supermarket or chemist. We want to show that science does not have to be done in a laboratory, by people in white coats. Instead, science is involved in all aspects of people’s lives.

So come and see Girlguiding Ribble Valley for a spot of kitchen science!

What science experiments can be done with ingredients from your kitchen cupboards?

Come up to the castle and learn about reactions, rockets and rainbows!

Barn Owl Bill

Barn Owl BillBarn Owl Bill has been rescuing owls and other raptors in and around Lancashire since 1992.  Many of the birds are wild animals that have had unfortunate incidents but some are unwanted pets.

Although birds of prey are beautiful to look at they do not make good pets. They are hard to look after and many people cannot give them the attention they need. Often birds are abandoned after being bought with little or no knowledge about the care they require. These birds then find it difficult to return to the wild having previously been given food rather than hunting themselves. They are also less aware of the dangers they face having lived in captivity.

We will have a selection of birds on display.
