    Don’t miss your chance to join an audience of thousands, young and old, at the mighty eye on the sky. Past acts have ranged from Kraftwerk and the Radio Science Orchestra, while astronaut Helen Sharman, theoretical physicist Prof Jim Al-Khalili and other great scientific minds have given inspiring talks. Plus there’s always stargazing, science shows, experiments, and galactic games. Come for the day or camp (or glamp) and make this mission control for the weekend.

  3. Luna Cinema at Tatton Park

    Knutsford

    Is there anywhere finer to watch a blockbuster movie than in the glorious grounds of Tatton Park?

    Add Luna Cinema at Tatton Park to your Itinerary

    Every August, this historic estate – featuring a medieval hall and neoclassical mansion set amid landscaped grounds, gardens, and a deer park – plays host to a three-night festival of film. On the bill are recent smash hits, all shown on a giant screen surrounded by woodland near Tatton’s old stableyard. Order pre-show drinks from the Luna Bar, serving everything from beer to bubbles, and gourmet snacks such as eco-friendly boxes of Comté, Bath Blue and Perl Wen from The Cheese Geek. Premium tickets include fast-track queues, a perfectly positioned director’s chair, and a complimentary drink. Movies start just as dusk descends over Tatton’s treetops, with the stars on screen mirrored by those – weather allowing – in the skies above.

    Chester

    Enjoy the silver screen by the light of the silvery moon at Chester’s Moonlight Flicks, the popular summertime open-air cinema, set amid the crumbling columns, bathhouse mosaics and cypress trees in the Roman Gardens.

    Rug, shooting stick or hired deckchair, whatever your choice of perch there’s no fixed seating, so arrive early to get a good spot. You’re welcome to bring a picnic or order a hot, tasty pizza (and a glass of wine or beer) to be delivered to your pitch. Then sit back and relax, tuning in with the wireless headphones for a fully immersive al-fresco night at the movies.
