    Destination Dining is an opportunity for you to join the National Space Centre’s teams to celebrate our planet, enjoy food from local providers, actively help reduce food miles, eat the very best of the season and discover how science is making a positive impact on lives right here in Leicester.

    Arrive beneath giant rockets, sip an exclusive Space Cocktail, sit down in the heart of our galleries to a sumptuous three-course meal, before joining our in-house astronomer for a tour of the night sky.

    Don’t forget, you will have the whole Centre to explore*, so take a trip to the moon and back, but leave the hard work to us.

This Month's Theme

Tonight's menu is based on the use of satellites in sustainable farming, with a focus on seasonal vegetables and fruit.

Satellite technology is transforming the way farmers manage crops and livestock, and it might also hold part of the answer how agriculture can adapt to the impacts of climate change – and reduce contributing to it.
