SMASHfestUK is back for its third year and things are getting scarier!

Unbeknownst to the good people of Deptford a super volcano has been sleeping gently under Lewisham and things are going to get hot! A free STEM/Arts festival, SMASHfestUK explores how to survive and rebuild when everything you know has been shaken to bits, smothered in ash or plain cooked. And what to do when the very air you breathe can kill you, the plants and animals are dead and it’s raining sulphuric acid…
