A supersonic weekend of Cracking Ideas at Spaceport

10th October 2012

Categories: News

Continuing Spaceport’s jam-packed programme of events, on 13th & 14th October Wallace & Gromit invite all budding inventors and designers for a weekend of Cracking Ideas at Spaceport!

Spaceport has teamed up with the Intellectual Property Office for one weekend only to present this amazing opportunity, with a range of workshops and activities taking place across the two days.
The weekend is a must for curious minds! Learn everything there is to know about innovation from the experts, with the chance to create your own logo or write your own jingle with one of our ‘ideas guys’. Each child will receive a FREE Moon Bug kit* to make their very own Moon Bug at home, or why not visit the Moon Bug Pit Stop – a galactic garage where you can not only work on your own contraption, but you’ll be able to learn about patents in the process. You’ll have the chance to put your newfound knowledge to the test by entering the AMAZING Cracking Ideas competition!


Don’t forget to look out for Wallace & Gromit who will be making regular appearances throughout the entire weekend, get your picture taken with the world’s most famous inventor and his faithful pooch. Visitors can also enjoy the entire Wallace & Gromit in Space exhibition, which was designed especially for Spaceport and has attracted over 150,000 visitors since it opened back in April, 2011. The exhibition offers visitors the entire Grand Day Out experience with a chance to visit Wallace’s workshop along with other specially selected sets from the film, have a go on some interactive contraptions, and design your own alien. Take the opportunity to venture on an exciting interactive and educational journey through the whole attraction.


Cracking Ideas Weekend is free as part of the usual Spaceport admission price which can be upgraded and combined with a trip on the famous Mersey Ferry so why not take to the seas and the skies on 13th and 14th October!
*Moon Bug kit subject to availability and valid with every paying child ticket. Normal Spaceport admission applies.
