Blast off into outer space with the exciting event Beam me up Peterborough! which ties in with Peterborough Museum’s new Space: Fact & Fiction exhibition (supported by the UK Space Agency). 

This event will take place on Saturday 29 – Sunday 39 June, from 10am-5pm.

Join all your favourite characters from science fiction! Meet Klingons, Star Fleet Officers, Star Wars bounty hunter and more as they take over the Museum. Why not have your picture taken in a Klingon chair…if you dare!


Throughout the weekend there will be a programme of activities, trails and talks – fun for the whole family! Join us for sci-fi themed craft. Plus at 2pm each day there will be an exciting talk covering what’s really involved in providing scientific advice to a Hollywood blockbuster with Dr Hugh Mortimer from STFC RAL Space, and a history of Doctor Who with Vivacity’s Heritage Interpretation Manager Stuart Orme.
