Rocket Fuel

19-20 July, Midlands Arts Centre

I am really excited to be collaborating with immersive theatre company Little Earthquake in commemorating the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon-landing. Rocket Fuel will present this groundbreaking mission as one single spectacular event combining performance,  sound, projection, live cameras and food. A veritable feast for all the senses.

Audiences will be treated to an in-flight meal inspired by Neil Armstrong’s actual meal plan including a pre-blast-off breakfast briefing will be accompanied by a deliciously designed cocktail. This will be followed by some stellar courses throughout the journey into space including a delicious dessert to coincide with Neil and Buzz’s Moonwalk, and a signature drink to capture the moment of splashdown. The menu has been developed with my all-time favourite chef and partner in crime Chris Hughes and his team – so you’re guaranteed something truly out of this world!

Following the performance guests will also have the chance to buy a range of cosmic cocktails from a pop-up space bar as well as the opportunity to snap a stellar selfie with the astronauts.

Rocket Fuel is suitable for vegetarians however, please note that, due to the complexity of the event, we cannot accommodate food allergies and intolerances but will try and adapt the menu accordingly with advance notice (at least 2 weeks before the performance).

Rocket Fuel is a collaboration between Little Earthquake and Kaye Winwood. It is part of MoonFest – a nine-day programme of moon inspired events, performances, screenings and activities created with artists, academics and audience members. More information here
