The interactive event runs until September and hopes to inspire any budding astronauts

A summer of space exploration is set to get underway this week as a galactic experience makes its first UK appearance.

Interactive event Kids on the Moon is aiming to inspire the next generation of budding astronauts aged between six and 10-years-old at its free programme at The Glades shopping centre.

“Thousands of children from around the globe including Brazil Italy, Serbia and Lithuania have loved the exhibition and we wanted to take a giant leap and bring the same magic and wonder here,” said the shopping centre’s general manager, Kate Miller.

The 40 minute sessions will see youngsters don their space helmets and take a trip to the moon, learning about space exploration along the way.

Ms Miller added: “Space and science are subjects we can all embrace more and encourage our children to develop a thirst for, and we hope the event will open up the dialogue further between parents, guardians and care-givers and young family members.

The hourly sessions last from 10am to 4.30pm every Tuesday to Sunday until September 2, sign up at the lower atrium of The Glades.
