Journey to the moon with Tom Hanks

Exploring humans’ trips to the moon.

Humankind’s travels to the moon are among our species’ biggest accomplishments. These journeys took us further than ever before, and allowed us to step foot on Earth’s closest celestial body, the moon – something that would have absolutely blown the minds of our ancestors.

These incredible moments in time are the subject of an immersive experience at the Lightroom in King’s Cross, London. 

Narrated by two-time Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks, The Moonwalkers: A Journey With Tom Hanks reveals intimate details of the Apollo space missions, which ran between 1968 and 1972, and took 12 human beings to the moon. It also includes interviews with the astronauts of the Artemis programme, which will see more human beings land on the moon in the near future.

If that weren’t exciting enough, the people behind the project should entice you even further. The experience was co-written by Hanks and BAFTA-nominated writer Christopher Riley, whose work has appeared on Netflix, BBC, and PBS. It also includes an original score by Anne Nikitin, who worked on series like HIJACK and American Animals.

The Moonwalkers: A Journey With Tom Hanks, which opened on December 6, runs until October 13. It’s on every hour on the hour while the Lightroom is open and lasts around 50 minutes. Tickets cost £25 (approx €29.09) for adults and from £15 (approx. €17.46) for those under 18 and students.
