Warrington Market to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Lunar Landings Published: Wednesday, 17th July 2019

Warrington Market aims to take you out of this world this weekend as it hosts the first ever Warrington Sci-Fi Day.

On Saturday 20 July, in addition to the usual award winning market stalls, you will also find a variety of space and geeky themed activity both inside and outside of the market.

The date marks the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo moon landings and to celebrate, a replica Apollo 11 will be on site and you can even make your own rockets as part of the lunar landings workshop.

Inside up on the mezzanine floor, you will find a selection of the finest geeky stalls around and no geeky event would be complete without a selection of astronauts and science fiction character friends making an appearance and they will also be posing for photos throughout the day.

There will also be an X-Wing replica model inside the market and fun activities for all of the family throughout the day.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Russ Bowden said; “Warrington Market is more than just a market. It’s a hub of activity and provides a range of specialist events with Warrington Sci-Fi Day a great example. This is just one of many events taking place in and around the temporary market over the summer months.”

The event kicks off from 10am on Saturday and is completely free.
