Lunar Express from Story Trails takes children aged 3-7 years old on a lunar adventure.

Little astronauts and their accompanying grown-up mission commanders are invited on a journey around the moon, marvelling at the wondrous moon views while floating in space, discovering all the new and marvellous things to be seen along the way, all from the comfort of a beautiful old rocket-train.

The only things is, the ancient, space-bound vessel might be a little past its very best and anyone could be called on to get busy and do a little DIY fixing here and there. At the end of the 30-minute show, all moon explorers will be invited to create their very own Moon-memento.

Sessions at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm on 27 August, part of Creative Day.

Sessions at 10:30am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm on 29 August.

Lunar Express is a Creative Challenge commission.

Children welcome
