Welcome to the world of Ensonglopedia

An Ensonglopedia is a musical and alphabetical adventure, with a range of songs on a single theme.

Three Ensonglopedias are currently touring the UK, one Ensonglopedia is currently in production, and there are two shorter Ensonglopedias that were created for specific occasions.

Ensonglopedia is the brainchild of John Hinton.

The six Ensonglopedias are:

Ensonglopedia of Science
Ensonglopedia of Animals
Ensonglopedia of British History
Ensonglopedia of the Human
Ensonglopedia of Plants
