Tickets selling fast for half-term day out at National Space Centre
Families planning a half-term trip to one of the East Midlands’ top family attractions are urged to book quickly.
Following a sell-out weekend, as it reopened after lockdown restrictions eased, the National Space Centre says several days during half-term are already fully booked, with visitor numbers restricted “to ensure the safety of visitors and staff” – and urged families hoping to attend to book now or risk missing out.
A spokesman for the Leicester attraction said: “We reopened to a sell-out weekend thanks to the amazing support from visitors and the staff who made it all possible.”
Tickets are selling fast for the Project Astronaut half-term activities.
The spokesman said: “The Discovery team will be taking on Project Astronaut, which will include talks, workshops and science busking telling the story of the history of human spaceflight.
“Sessions include an ‘astronaut autopsy’, where visitors will be able to join the team to understand how a spacesuit can save your life in temperatures that can reach -270C.”
The activities are included in all day tickets to the centre from May 29-June 6 and will be run as socially distanced drop-in sessions.
Other highlights include a full-dome show in the UK’s largest planetarium – again with socially distanced seating.
The spokesman said: “With significantly reduced tickets available each day to ensure the safety of the visitors and staff, tickets are selling fast and the centre does anticipate selling out in advance, with limited availability only on June 4-6 remaining.
“Booking in advanceis essential.”
