National Space Centre
Exploration Drive, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE4 5NS
Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to visit the National Space Centre in Leicester for an evening of guest speakers, planetarium shows, interactive workshops, crafts and stargazing with astronomers from the Leicester Astronomical Society.
For this Space Lates, we’re heading to the planets, with our guests talking about past, current and future missions to some of our closest neighbours in the Solar System, and some a “little” further away.
