Apollo 10 Anniversary Dinner

Saturday 18th May 2019 from 18:30pm to 23:15pm

National Space Centre

Exploration Drive, Leicester, LE4 5NS


On the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 10, the National Space Centre is joined by some very special guests to celebrate the unsung heroes of the Apollo space programme.

Manfred “Dutch” von Ehrenfried, Gerry Griffin, Sy Liebergot and some secret Skype guests will host an Apollo themed dinner, based on the menu enjoyed by the Apollo 10 crew on route to the Moon.

This will be followed by a Q&A session, prior to a screening of Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium.
