Welcome to our Space Station! Train to be an astronaut, make your own rocket, colour and LIFT OFF!

Ready Steady Lift Off! is an immersive theatre show for 3 – 8 year olds and their families combining live performance, music, storytelling and painting in one interactive theatre show.

Ready Steady Lift Off! invites you the audience to take part in our weird and wacky astronaut programme. Come navigate, sing, colour and play your way through the 7 stages of training, from working as a team in a space station to piloting your own rocket around our galaxy. This immersive experience will get the family colouring and creating together, and once you’ve decorated your rocket, you will orbit around space meeting strange creatures and overcoming some cosmic catastrophes – all in a days work for the LIFT OFF team! Finally fly your rocket home!
