Laika

A Unicorn Production

Brave the Unknown

  • By Bryony Hannah and Avye Leventis

Laika, the space dog: the first living creature to orbit earth.

That was in 1957. Today it’s 2057, and Sami lives with his mum. She’s an astronaut and she understands that there could be a better future out in space. But Sami’s life is down here. So now they must face the prospect of letting go, saying goodbye and – just like Laika – head off into the unknown.

A moving sci-fi adventure, inventively and beautifully told using puppetry, movement and music.

SPACE RACE WORKSHOP: 21, 22, 24, 26, 27 & 28 OCT, 12.30 & 3.30pm

Join the space race with your very own rocket pack. We'll help you and your grown-up build the best rocket pack this side of Saturn, then ship you off to collect moon rocks. Each adult needs a child and each child needs and adult. We're the Unicorn Space Team!

This event is part of Up Club+, tickets are £10 for one adult and child. Places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
