It Came From Outer Space!


Wednesday, 24 July 2019


11am, 1pm and 3pm


Lapworth Museum of Geology (R4 on campus map)


Free, booking recommended

Boldly go where (almost) nobody has gone before – behind the scenes at the Lapworth Museum of Geology.

We’re inviting you to a theatrical guided tour which lifts the lid on some of Lapworth’s most prized specimens. Step through to a rarely glimpsed space, lined with magical moving shelves, all packed with marvels from deep underground plus some stunning extra-terrestrial treasures.

If we dig even further beneath the surface, what secrets might we uncover — not just about the objects on display — but also about the mysterious tour guide…?

This event coincides with Lapworth’s Family Fun Day and forms part of the Museum’s year-round programme of entertaining, inspiring and educational family activities.

Presented by Little Earthquake in partnership with the Lapworth Museum of Geology and Arts & Science Festival.

Access: There is level, but restricted access on this tour. If you have any access requirements please let us know in advance by contacting us at 


50 years after the Apollo 11 Moon landing, Little Earthquake is joining forces with Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) and the University of Birmingham to celebrate this special anniversary in spectacular style.

Running 16 – 24 July, MoonFest begins on the same day that Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins launched into space 50 years ago, and concludes on the day they splashed down into the Pacific Ocean at the end of their fantastic voyage.

For nine special days expect a programme bursting with events and activities created with artists, academics and audience members.
