The National Space Centre has come to the end of a very positive summer holiday period.
With a focus on visitor and staff safety the charity closed its doors on 19 March, but, after significant changes to the building were made and following government guidelines, it was able to reopen on 08 August.
To support safe distancing only 20% of standard entry tickets were made available and consistently sold out.
Thanks to those supporting the charity by buying tickets and offering fantastic feedback, the Leicester based visitor attraction has been able to launch new opening dates for the rest of the year.
Malika Andress, spokesperson for the National Space Centre, said; “It was always vital for the organisation to focus on safety and a positive customer experience, however, as a charity it was also essential for us to look to the long term survival of the Centre. The support over the summer period will allow us to confidently open our doors for a limited period going forward.”
Pre-booking is still essential, and the Centre will be opening its doors Friday, Saturday and Sunday in school term time periods (10:00 – 17:00), with every day opening in Leicestershire school holiday periods.
Dates and times are all subject to change, as the Centre works with government to help manage public safety and additional dates may be added if demand exceeds supply.
