Explaining his background Richard said: "I used to do street theatre and busking so I was used to performing in front of people. Then one day I took my kids to the science museum in London and saw how good their props were, but I didn’t like their patter. I thought if I had those props then I could do great demonstrations. Then after a lifetime of dancing around in front of kiddie winkles doing science demonstrations I was suddenly stopped in my tracks by discovering 12-14 year olds and realising that science was dying. There was a whole rung of the education system missing and that’s why the science festival had to start."
