To celebrate 50 years since the first man walked on the moon, Telford Centre is going to space this summer!

Come along and jet off to space between Monday 5th and Sunday 18th August when the centre will become a space academy.

Families can experience a space adventure. Grab your space suit and helmet and learn all the skills needed to become the next Neil Armstrong with intergalactic games out of this world.

All astronaut recruits receive a space academy ‘I’ve passed’ certificate and a sweet treat. 

There is also the opportunity to see the stars and planets close up in an amazing 360 degree, fully immersive digital planetarium.
