An evening with Helen Sharman CMG OBE, the first British person in space.

Helen Sharman became the first British Astronaut in May 1991, aged 27, when she launched on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. She spent 8 days orbiting the Earth, living and working on the Mir Space Station.

A pioneer, role model and inspirational speaker, Helen will host an unforgettable evening beneath Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon in the Nave of Lincoln Cathedral as she takes us on a journey through her experiences – from recruitment and training through to the time she spent in space and her return to Earth.
