     1st dec –  5th march 2017   entrance free

Curious minds of all ages are invited to step inside the whimsical and wonderful world of inventions by eccentric English inventor Rowland Emett, as Thinktank hosts some of his most significant works, including the original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car.

As part of the playful exhibition, visitors will be able to enjoy interactive kinetic art and exhibits from the MAD Museum (Mechanical Art and Design) in Stratford upon Avon and Cabaret Mechanical Theatre Collection.

Magical machines from other artists, many of whom were influenced by Rowland Emett’s automata style, will be on display too, showcasing the amazing legacy of this true British icon.

Alongside Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the centrepiece of the magical exhibition will be A Quiet Afternoon in the Cloud Cuckoo Valley which is Rowland Emett’s last and largest machine.
