On your marks…get set…BLAST OFF!

Today is the day of the space race! A race to put the first human on the Moon! But our astronaut isn’t quite like others, she’s…different.

Alba has been in training and she has even made her own rocket! But can she really power a rocket with crisps? What is past Pluto? Are there robots in Space? And will anyone ever listen to the smallest of space explorers? It’s one small step for most astronauts, but one giant leap for little Alba!

Join us for a surprising space race and see if Alba really can make it all the way to the moon. A cosmic adventure to outer space!

A story of discovery, individuality and a celebration of differences for 3-7 year olds and their families. Including original live music and puppets.

Family Ticket £22

A family ticket is available for £22. Must include one adult and one child under the age of 16. Call Ticket Office to book.
