Eight days, three hours, 18 minutes, 35 seconds. That’s the total duration of the most important and celebrated space mission ever flown.

Join us for a special preview screening of a brand new BBC Two docu-drama to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.

This feature-length drama documentary tells the real story of the mission as it happened. With access to hours of declassified cockpit audio recorded by the astronauts themselves, '8 Days' is a stunning 21st century retelling of the story of the men who went to the Moon.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A of lunar experts and key figures involved in the making of '8 Days'.

Doors open at 18:45.
