The event starts at 8.30am and is based in and around Tunsgate Quarter Shopping Centre. There will be interactive exhibits from local space companies and researchers showcasing exciting and accessible space activities. On the upper level of Tunsgate there will be art workshops and arts and craft activities available, with a live string quartet. There will also be entries from the art competition on display. On the Ground floor of Tunsgate will be a remote control Mars Rover and a wide variety of hands on, interactive demonstrations to get involved with from black holes to alka-seltzer rockets.
