A message from the organiser:
“Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the easing of Covid-19 restrictions across the UK and Ireland, Professor Brian Cox – Horizons: A 2021 Space Odyssey will be postponed until 2022.
We want to ensure all ticketholders can attend and therefore the full schedule of shows will go ahead on alternate dates next year, from 29th August-2nd October 2022.
We understand this will be disappointing, but we look forward to seeing everyone in 2022. We’ve renamed the Tour “Horizons: A 21st Century Space Odyssey. Hopefully that'll cover it!”.
Having set two Guinness World Records with his previous sell-out World Tour, Professor Brian Cox is back with a brand-new Arena show for 2021.
Horizons takes audiences on a dazzling cinematic journey; a story of how we came to be and what we can become. Using state of the art LED screen technology, Arenas will be filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes and a time before the Big Bang. What is the nature of space and time? Why does the Universe exist? How did life begin, how rare might it be and what is the significance of life in the Cosmos? What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal Universe? The deepest of questions will be explored using the latest advances in our understanding of quantum theory, black holes, biology, planetary science, astronomy and cosmology.
Horizons is a celebration of our civilisation, of our music, art, philosophy and science; an optimistic vision of our future if we continue to explore Nature with humility and to value ourselves and our fellow human beings.
Brian will once again be joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince, perhaps the only collection of sentient atoms in the observable Universe capable of overseeing a Q&A with an audience of 10,000 people whilst wearing an old cardigan.
'A Jaw-dropping reminder that human life is both irrelevant and hugely precious.' ****
'Science and cosmology doesn’t get any more dazzling and interesting than this – a wonderful journey through space and time orchestrated by Professor Brian Cox.'
'Is your brain hurting yet? Because mine certainly was, but in beautifully, mind-expanding sort of way…We came away with a new found of love of the basics of science and maths, and a thirst to learn more' ****
