Press and Media
The National Space Centre has a core of amazing space experts, with a wide range of knowledge covering past, present and future missions, as well as space science and exploration.
We are happy to work with news outlets to provide this expertise, either on site, online or in the studio, but as an Educational Charity there may be costs for out of hours filming, travel or other expenses.
How to get involved
If you are a member of the press please email [email protected] stating the kind of information you want to receive (space news, school holiday information, events updates, educational information etc.) You can unsubscribe at any time and we will not share your information with third parties.
Our team will always try to fill requests for interviews online, in-person or over the phone.
Please email [email protected] in the first instance with your request and somebody will pick it up as soon as possible.
As a charity the National Space Centre is always happy to work with families and individuals with appropriate blogs wanting to visit to post a review of a visit to the Centre.
Unfortunately this is not something we are in a position to pay for, but we are happy to provide free entry to those with appropriate blogs (family days out, events, space news etc.)
Please email [email protected] with full details of your website and blog.
The National Space Centre is a charity organisation setup with the mission of communicating space and interests in science. As such, any filming carried out at the centre must be relevant to our purpose and function as a centre, and be of benefit to the wider community.
It is not our policy to allow open filming to take place that is un-related and not aligned to the interests of the National Space Centre.
Therefore requests from community groups, students, amateur filmmakers or other special interest groups are likely to be declined if no wider benefit is perceived.
The suitability of any filming is left at the discretion of the National Space Centre to decide.
If you are an amateur filmmaker or special interest group, it is possible to privately hire the centre at a cost. These costs will cover the overheads of opening the National Space Centre out of hours and security and technical staff to be on duty.
As a not-for-profit charity the National Space Centre cannot support this activity without covering these costs. Should you wish to look at privately hiring the centre, you can contact our venue hire team [email protected]
