Ensonglopedia is a company that makes educational music shows, run by science communicator and theatre maker John Hinton. The first show in the series, Ensonglopedia of Science, launched in February 2017, and has a song about science for each letter of the alphabet. The second show, Ensonglopedia of Animals, has recently been granted Arts Council funding, and will launch in April 2018. Here are some music videos of songs in Ensonglopedia of Science:


Ensonglopedia of Science is currently on tour throughout the UK (and Ensonglopedia of Animals will be soon). This website contains lyrics, videos and audio from the existing show. The project is the brainchild of John Hinton, creator of the multi-award-winning 'Scientrilogy' of musical comedies:

Now he’s just plain old John.

But he’s still singing silly songs about science…
