Saturday 23rd – Saturday 30th March and Monday 1st – Sunday 7th April – ‘Touchdown at Touchwood’ this Easter

The Easter action launches with immersive space experience, ‘Touchdown at Touchwood’, where the centre’s very own spacecraft will land on Jubilee Walk from 11am-3pm each day.

The out of this world experience will create excitement and joy for the whole family, as children step inside the spacecraft to assist with its take off to the moon. Visitors can compete in a series of tasks to pass to the next level, with a range of games to participate in.

Guests will also be wowed by a planetarium that will transport them to space and joined by astronauts on selected days to hear tales of their past adventures. There will even be the opportunity to dress up as an astronaut and learn how to walk the moon. Those who are successful will pass-out of astronaut school and get a graduation certificate to take home.
