This show has ended.
This show tells the frankly, bizarre inspirational story of a 43 year old man’s mid-life crisis creative adventure to hack his way into space from his garden shed in St Albans, England, via the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne and a rocket launch at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
Performed in a custom-designed Heath Robinson-esque Space Shed, this is a show about technology and art coming together, the power of stories to create new realities and the thin lines between obsession and madness.
It’s about the glorious possibilities for scientists and artists to work together and how even the smallest person can make a difference and achieve their seemingly impossible dreams.
Please note: This event is outside so please dress accordingly (some seating will be provided to those requiring it for access needs).
Tickets: Free (no booking required)
Start Times: Friday 29 September 12pm & 5.45pm, Saturday 30 September 11am & 12.30pm
Running Time: 30 mins
Location: Space Shed outside Lincoln Performing Arts Centre
EXTRA SHOW: On Friday 29 at 2.30pm there’s a chance to join Jon in conversation with Dr Phil Sutton a lecturer in astrophysics at University of Lincoln specialising in planetary rings and exoplanetary science (which we think is pretty cool). Just turn up, it’s all free.
How I Hacked My Way Into Space is part of SPACE 60 a mini celebration of sixty years since the launch of Sputnik on 4 October 1957 and LiGHTS Night on Friday 29 Sept where University of Lincoln celebrates how research and innovation influences our every day lives: http://lightsexpo.org/
