Celebration of Apollo Moon landings

Where: Meteor Business Park, Cheltenham Road East, Gloucester GL2 9QL

When: Saturday, July 20, and Sunday, July 21, 10am to 4pm

Jet Age Museum in Gloucestershire is holding a weekend celebration of spaceflight and rocketry to mark 50 years of Apollo 11.

The event, which runs from Saturday, July 20, to Sunday, July 21, will feature a small model exhibitiion and Apollo memorabilia.

There will also be all the normal attractions of Jet Age Museum, including Vulcan and Trident cockpits, shop and café.

Jet Age Museum opened its doors in August 2013, beginning a new chapter in the Gloucestershire Aviation Collection's 30-plus year history.

The museum celebrates Gloucestershire's rich aviation heritage from the early days of flight, through the birth of the Jet Age to the present day.

Jet Age Museum is staffed only by volunteers, some of whom flew in aircraft that are on display.

Come and visit, ask questions and learn about the history of aviation in Gloucestershire and beyond. Jet Age Museum aims to preserve the past and inspire the future.

Entry to the museum is free and there is free parking.
