In a New Light: Soviet Cinema of the 1950's followed by a screening of The Cranes are Flying
Shows & Displays

In his lecture, Roger will trace the development of Soviet cinema in the ideological thaw that followed Nikita Kruschev’s denunciation of Stalin in Feb 1956. That thaw saw a relaxation of repression and censorship enabling filmmakers to reject the state-ordained tropes of ‘socialist realism’ –with its celebration of Soviet ideals above all else - which had dominated and stifled Soviet culture theretofore; this heralded something of a renaissance in the nation’s filmmaking.

A Giant Adventure
Family event

The ground shivered and the trees quivered as a rumbling could be heard throughout The Garden. A giant belly laugh roared as the two new residents looked over the tiny world they had stumbled upon.

Trees no higher than their knees, miniscule flowers, puddles of water and crowds of small humans running about having fun and laughing together. They looked around and decided that this would be a great new home for them both. They are big, bold and rather messy! Join us and have a giant adventure.

Weekend Late Night Event
Star gazing events

Most Fridays and Saturdays in the late slot (approx. midnight-3am, please check website for times) we run our premium weekend events. These run similar to our main evening events but have a reduced number of guests to ensure you enjoy the maximum time at the various telescopes and have an intimate observing session with our most experienced astronomers.

Join us for a special evening of talks and all your astronomy questions will be answered, then if the skies are clear we’ll be taking a good look at the beautiful sights of the cosmos, if not we have the technology to bring it alive. Of these two events, Late Night Dark Skies is timed to coincide with a new moon when the sky is at its darkest and this is the only event where there is a 30% discount on a future booking if you are unable to observe as well as a free Kielder mug!
