Tim Peake 2016 UK Tour FAQ

07 October 2016

Here are some of the answers to the questions we have received about Tim’s tour of the UK.


What venues is Tim visiting?

13 October – Cardiff: Techniquest Science Discovery Centre

14 October – Leicester: National Space Centre

15 October – Manchester: Museum of Science and Industry

15 October – Salford: Piazza at Media City

16 October – Glasgow: Glasgow Science Centre

17 October – Edinburgh: Our Dynamic Earth & Usher Hall

18 October – Belfast: W5 & Ulster Hall

19 October – London: Science Museum & the Royal Albert Hall


Where can I get tickets and information?



Salford (no ticket is required, but please arrive early – event will start at 2pm)





 Please note: due to the extremely high demand for tickets, some venues are already sold out.

Cardiff will not be offering tickets but are inviting local school children and teachers to take part in the event. They will also be live streaming to the Skills Cymru event.


Why is Tim only visiting these cities?

While we want to make the tour as inclusive as possible we do appreciate that there will be lots of disappointed people because Tim isn’t visiting their city or region. We are visiting the four UK capitals as well as venues in Manchester and Leicester. Tim will also be in York and Portsmouth for the public talks which will accompany the schools conferences in November.  Ticket information is available online for York and Portsmouth.

There will be further opportunities to see Tim in the future and we will be looking to visit those regions that we have missed from this tour.


Will there be an opportunity to meet Tim?

Meet and greet opportunities on the tour will be very limited due to the tight schedule and the numbers of people attending the events. All of the events will contain a Q&A session.
