As part of our Festival of Science: Space we invited families and children of all ages to come and explore the Royal Albert Hall’s intergalactic universe at The Big Space Day!

From experiencing life on the International Space Station in virtual reality, to learning to code with the Institute of Imagination, and seeing a real life Mars Rover up close, this day had everything to inspire young minds.
