About the event

Tim is the European Space Agency's first British astronaut who spent six months aboard the International Space Station. Learn all about Tim's journey, get a 360° tour of a Soyuz capsule, the same capsule that bought him home, and experience what it's like to sit in the pilot's seat.


Bring your budding astronauts along as this experience uses the same VR systems that astrounauts use to train for their missions and is considered as close to the real thing as possible! Your older kids will be mesmerised by how breathtaking Tim's world is, and you'll no doubt all leave the screening inspired to find out if you have what it takes to become an astronaut yourself!
