  13. The Mechanicals Automata- a mechanical figure or contrivance constructed to act as if by its own motive power. Experience this highly interactive exhibition at the Beacon Museum from 25th March 2017. The Mechanicals is an exhibition of two parts. Witty, beautifully hand crafted automata are displayed alongside hand-on exhibits that show the basic mechanisms involved in making the automata work. The aim of this witty combination of art and science is to inspire visitors to help them understand the basic mechanisms involved in how the automata work. The figures are each busy with a zany activity, enhanced by a funny title and underpinned by an interactive board allowing you to play and understand the relevant mechanical principle involved. Drives, pulleys, ratchets and levers that make these machines work, underpin our lives in so many ways. The Mechanicals is a collaborative project between Science Projects ltd and the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre, famous for its collection of beautiful, humorous handmade automata

The Mighty Doonans have a deserved reputation for their imaginative and innovative interpretations of traditional and contemporary songs.

This leads to thoroughly entertaining performances that delight audiences across the ‘folk world’. The original ‘Doonan Family Band’ regulars; Mick & Kevin Doonan, Phil Murray & Stu Luckley, are joined by various family members, Rosie & Frances Doonan (Mick’s daughters), Jamie Luckley (Stu’s son) a great old friend Ian (Walter) Fairbairn and occasionally joined by Ben Murray (Phil’s son) which all constitute ‘The Mighty Doonans’. The original ‘Doonan Family Band’ have been part of the British folk scene for over 40 years. John Doonan , father of Mick and Kevin, was the godfather of Irish music, a World Champion Piccolo Player.

But the Keswick ARP warden has just ordered him to “Put that candle out!” - and the Borrowdale Hermit is far from happy...
