The electronic / instrumental quartet Public Service Broadcasting perform their acclaimed 2015 album The Race for Space in full to celebrate the visit of Luke Jerram's Museum of the Moon to Wakefield.

Their Wakefield show is just one of a handful of times they will play the album in full this year. In The Race for Space, Public Service Broadcasting transport the listener back to a time when the USA and the USSR battled to gain control of a new frontier - space. Telling the story of the space race through archive footage and propaganda of the time, the album weaves its way from Sputnik’s launch in 1957 to the last mission to the moon, Apollo 17, in 1972, taking in some of the dramatic highs - and lows - en route.

With a full bar and food available.
