Space Weekend - New Dates

5th September 2022

As a mark of respect for Her Majesty The Queen, this event has now been moved to Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September.


Get ready for blast off this September at Tapnell Farm Park’s new Space Weekend … an out of this world experience for all the family!

This all-weather event features incredible, explosive, interactive Rocket Shows and Rocket Making Workshops by the amazing Wonderstruck Science Company.

Be blown away! Have you ever wondered how a rocket engine works? Find out with the Rocket Show’s demonstrations of a working pulse jet engine, a hybrid rocket motor and a full-size working rocket car!

Then get ready for blast off! Learn how to build your own compressed air rocket in the Rocket Workshop and launch it into the sky! There’ll be a competition to see who can fire their rocket the furthest!

Plus, build your own space colony in our Big Brick Build Off competition, travel the solar system with our virtual planet tour and craft your own rocket or colour your own spaceship, in our Space Crafts' Cabin.

Normal Farm Park admission applies and tickets must be booked online in advance.
