Anthony Inglis and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will be taking us on a voyage through the galaxy (not literally), to play some of the best space-based music from the movies. And no 'space show' would be complete without a laser show, so there will be plenty of lights and even a blast of fireworks!

Featuring the iconic tunes from 'Star Wars', 'ET', 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' and 'Superman', the night will also include some favourites from 'Star Trek', 'Battlestar Galactica' and 'Thunderbirds'. New additions for 2017 include James Horner's movie tune for 'Apollo 13' and David Arnold's 'Independence Day'.

There will also be a bit of classical music in the form of Holst (from 'The Planets'... obviously).
