Post-Show VIP ‘Afterlife Club’ BRIAN COX 2017

It has taken 4 billion years from the origin of life on Earth to produce living things that can contemplate the true scale of the Universe, and our contemplations raise challenging questions about our place and value amongst an infinite sea of stars.

Using state of the art visuals, Professor Brian Cox will explore the Cosmos as revealed to us by modern astronomy; a place of bright swirling galaxies, dark energy, black holes and billions of potential homes for life. The evening will be mesmerising for all ages, deeply satisfying for the scientifically minded, intriguing and inspirational for the novice.
