In 2010 Jon Spooner accidentally set up his own space agency, based out of the shed at the bottom of his garden. Since then, the Unlimited Space Agency (UNSA) has recruited thousands of Agents and the British astronaut Tim Peake is our patron. Jon tours to music and science festivals in UNSA’s spectacular mobile headquarters the Space Shed hosting conversations with inspirational scientists.

For the Great Exhibition Road Festival, The Space Shed lands to host two days of space-based entertainment for all the family.

Guests include Chaitanya Kumar – Senior Policy Advisor for Green Alliance and Chaitanya is an energy geek, policy advisor and climate campaigner. He’ll be joining Jon in the Space Shed to share his thoughts on how we can prevent the worst consequences of climate change and do our bit to help save the planet; and Jenny Nelson – Professor of Physics at Imperial College London.
