Steampunks in Space

20 - 21 November 2021

A celebration of steam-powered science fiction.

A weekend dedicated to the “history that never was”. Time to get out your ray guns, strap on your goggles and jump in your spaceship. Head to the National Space Centre for an alternative weekend where we mark the 155th birthday of the grandfather of science fiction, HG Wells.


Booking in advance is essential.
We have a set capacity for this event, which we anticipate will SELL OUT. Please make sure you book in advance (including Annual Pass holders)
