Fifty years ago the first people walked on the Moon. Discover the epic story behind this historic moment as we screen ‘CAPCOM GO! The Apollo Story’ in our immersive planetarium dome.

A shorter film will showcase spectacular (day and night) footage taken in the North Pennines AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark by local photographer Gary Lintern.

The show is suitable for ages 7+ and lasts for 30 minutes.

Pre-booking essential – book here 

Access into the dome is through a narrow ‘door’ and you will need to sit on the floor. You are advised to bring a small cushion with you – anything bigger is not possible to avoid trip hazards.

This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 23 October to 3 November 2019 – discover more here.
