Please note Space Voyage has been postponed until 2023.
After the death of Her Majesty The Queen yesterday (8 September), and out of respect, we feel that the right decision is to postpone the Space Voyage event next week, 12-16 September. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and refunds for tickets purchased will be made automatically to the card you booked your tickets with. This refund will come from Eventbrite and can take up to 10 working days. If the card you booked your tickets with is no longer active, you will need to contact your bank.
We are working with the artist to arrange a date for this exciting event to come back next year and will keep you informed. It is looking likely that it will be the same period of time, i.e. Monday 11 - Friday 15 September 2023.
We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

Artist Peter walker says: “We are all responsible for this small planet that we started to explore in the 1960’s, Climate Change is part of the narrative. The artwork is about reflecting inwards as much as it is about reflecting outwards, and about how we take care of our small piece of the Universe.”
