According to The Velvet Onion website audience members have been asked to come dressed in the style of the show – with marks awarded for lab coats and beards.
The spoof science show is based on the 1980s science videos which were made for schools. Each of the eight programmes focuses on a scientific topic such as Calcium, Maths, Water and Sulphur.
Look Around you became a cult hit and starred some of the top names in comedy including Simon Pegg, Graham Linehan, Kevin Eldon, Harry Enfield, Matt Lucas, Adam Buxton, Julian Barratt, Nick Frost and David Mitchell – to name just a few.
