SPACE travel beckons for youngsters in Warwick this summer.

A number of events are taking place to tie in with Market Hall Museum’s exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of man first landing on the moon.

Museum in the Park at St Nicholas Park on Monday (July 22) offers the chance to make an alien headband and explore how moon craters are made. The free drop in event runs from 10am to 3pm. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Ticketed events at Market Hall Museum include an Astronaut Training Camp with Susie Imber on Wednesday July 24.

The winner of BBC2’s Astronauts: Do you have what it takes? will be answering questions about her astronaut training.

Youngsters will also be able to complete an astronaut training camp.

Mad Science will be offering tips on Surviving on an Alien Planet on Wednesday July 31, and on the same day there will be an opportunity to learn about the phases of the moon and the life of a star.
