The National Space Centre will be hosting a FREE online weekend of talks, Q&A sessions, workshops and fun fan and family science fiction experiences.

Join us for a celebration of Doctor Who, Blake’s 7, Sapphire and Steel, Thunderbirds, The Prisoner, The Tomorrow People and many other iconic science fiction films, tv programmes, books, comics, games and art.

Friday is our learning day, with sessions for schools, children, families and fans. This kicks off into a weekend of guest Q&A sessions (get your questions in now to beat the crowds), workshops and social sessions with many of the fantastic groups who have supported our events at the Centre.

Our guests and hosts are all giving their time freely to support the event, however, there will be opportunities to purchase autographs and merchandise throughout.
