One Giant Leap Leicester
July – October
Leicester city centre & National Space Centre

Take a trip to outer space and mark the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing! Summer events include a CreateACon in Space event for families and an intergalactic Outdoor Cinema. Don't miss a full programme of events at the National Space Centre, from family astronomy to a night in the museum – you can even see a piece of the Moon!

The fun continues in October half term with 15 space-themed LEGO® brick sculptures dotted around the city – have your very own space race around the city to find them all! Luke Jerram's stunning Museum of the Moon returns to Leicester Cathedral, with each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture representing 5km of the moon's surface. Play retro computer games inspired by the moon landings on public screens in the city centre, and be awed by a spectacular projection show on New Market Square.
