Fifty years after Neil Armstrong first stepped onto the Moon, it’s your turn to Lift Off! with the help of some incredible music including Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, Ron Grainer’s Theme from Doctor Who, and Hans Zimmer’s Earth, in our thrilling, interactive orchestral adventure.

The performance is expected to finish around 3.30pm.

Free family foyer activities

12–2.30pm, drop in for all concert ticket holders.

Come to a Journey Through Music workshop where you will find out more about the music to be performed in the concert, try out a new instrument, make a rocket shaker or listen to popular children’s author Simon Bartram read from his Bob, Man on the Moon stories!

Please note that although there will be plenty for everyone to do, spaces at some workshops will be limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
