Frank & McStein's Monster Laboratory: out the lab, into the fire...Our latest interactive fire show for audiences of all ages. 

Professors Frank and McStein have set up the M.O.N.S.T.E.R. LAB – The Ministry of Nonsensical Science and Terrifying Experimental Research, with the sole intention of awakening the most frightening, horrific and disgraceful creature known to man!

The laboratory consists of 6 fire-powered and interactive stations. These provide power-up tokens which the audience feed into the M.O.N.S.T.E.R.-O-METER (M-O-M). The M-O-M will grant the life force needed to awaken THE CREATURE. 

The monster lab runs for a maximum of three hours during an evening with the option of running consecutive nights. Each installation will take participants roughly 5 minutes to complete, alongside a grand finale every 25 mins with a 5 min duration.  

Frank & McStein's monster laboratory has been created for festivals and seasonal events by EEA in association with lightfires. Please contact us for more information.

EEA are committed to delivering their fire shows in as sustainable a way as possible, this means using responsibly sourced fuels such as wood from a sustainable source, smokeless fuels and the use of biofuel for the gas effects - this biofuel is called Futuria Liquid Gas https://www.calor.co.uk/sustainable-fuel/futuria-liquid-gas

The gas is supplied to us by a method called Mass Balance which is explained here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMffRftA3MM
