To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, The Mall is inviting families to join them for an out of this world adventure as the shopping centre welcomes their ‘Spectacular Space Camp’!

The free event will see mini astronauts explore the universe, floating through space in virtual reality whilst learning about stars and beyond in The Mall’s planetarium.

Launching in Central Square on Saturday 27th July until Friday 9th August, children will have the chance to touch a real-life meteorite (4.5 billion years old) before getting changed into their very own space suit and meeting The Mall’s Astronomer!

Families are then invited to step inside The Mall’s planetarium, which runs daily every 10 minutes between 11am and 4pm, meaning there’s no need to book. After learning all about the universe, mini astronauts can then experience what it feels like to float through space with the wonders of virtual reality!

After completing the ‘Spectacular Space Camp’, children will receive their very own certificate – ready to show their friends on the first day back at school. Members of The Mall Monster’s Friends Club will also receive a free gift after taking part**.

Before heading off on their next mission, children can also enjoy some tasty Astronaut Ice Cream seeing donations go towards The Mall’s 2019 Charity of The Year, Luton Foodbank.

The Mall will also be welcoming back their popular Reading Garden, located in Church Street. Children are set to prepare for lift off with the Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge 2019. 

Lavinia Douglass, Marketing Manager at The Mall Luton, commented: “We’re delighted to be welcoming our very own Spectacular Space Camp, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. The free fun will take place throughout the summer holidays and we’re looking forward to meeting lots of budding astronauts with families being transported to outer space with our planetarium and virtual reality zone!”
