TOUR OF THE UNIVERSE with
Media Partner BBC Sky at Night Magazine
'A first and a triumph'
... Professor Chris Lintott, astrophysicist and co-presenter of the BBC Sky at Night television programme.
'I can honestly say one of the best, if not the best production of astronomy I have seen on a live stage'
... Peter J Williamson, FRAS
'Consummate professionals. Highly engaging and refreshing'
... Chris Wood, Vectis Astronomical Society
TOUR OF THE UNIVERSE launched at Downton Moot, Wiltshire on 27 September 2014 where a 250+ crowd joined us in an outside medieval amphitheatre for a taste of our National Tour with media partner BBC Sky at Night Magazine.
It was a huge success ...
... and was followed by the big theatre official launch at Dorking Halls on Saturday 4th October 2014 where with host and co-presenter, rocket scientist Neil Phillipson, Professor Chris Lintott, and myself we brought our unique take on astronomy to a 400+ audience.
From there we presented at The Nottingham Playhouse, the Altrincham Garrick Playhouse, Manchester, The Epstein, Liverpool, The Atkinson, Southport, the King's Theatre, Cardiff and The Cresset in Peterborough.
Just the most fabulous three weeks. Amazing audiences. Overwhelming feedback, both on scene, but also on Twitter and Facebook.
And this is not the end. We've already been booked for the major SOLARSPHERE Event in Wales in August next year, with more offers in the pipeline.
And TOUR OF THE UNIVERSE 2 - a bigger and even better tour - is already being planned!
If you missed us this year - join us in 2015!
Below are some of the highlights ...
