BACK-UP LAUNCH DAY
(we will be able to tell you on Nov 29th if we need to use this date instead)
Artistic Director Tom Mansfield will be the artist in residence at CAS throughout November, transforming the Chapel (in St Mary’s Cemetery) into Andover Space Programme’s MISSION CONTROL.
He will also be working with Andover Young Carers and the Picket Twenty Fillies (W.I. Group) to design and develop a space craft to send to ‘near space’. We will be able to track the craft with GPS and will attempt to recover all footage from the flight.
The project will culminate in a display at the Winchester Science Centre, with support from Tom’s team at Upstart Theatre.
