With the help of extraordinary archive material and footage, matched only by his unparalleled storytelling, Tim will bring to life the awe-inspiring endeavours of those pioneering explorers we call astronauts.

There is nobody more qualified than Tim, as a longstanding European Space Agency astronaut, to celebrate the incredible achievements and historic human endeavour of space exploration.

From our first forays through to the vast potential of the future, Tim will recount stories from his own journey to space and bring to life many iconic and ground-breaking missions from the past. He’ll reveal what spaceflight is really like: from the wondrous view of Earth, living in weightlessness, the unique dangers and unexpected moments of humour, to the years of training and gruelling psychological and physical pressures an astronaut must endure.

The journey has only just begun...come and join Tim for this first-of-its-kind show, launching at Edinburgh Playhouse in 2024!
