This event is now SOLD OUT

Friday 22 January
IMAX Theatre, 20.30

Red-hot art-rockers Public Service Broadcasting are bringing their unique blend of spaced-out audio-visual entertainment to the Science Museum for a very special one-off show.

Performing a stone’s throw from our blockbuster exhibition Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age, the band will play the immersive, atmospheric music of their acclaimed 2015 album The Race to Space.

Interweaving analogue and electronic instrumentation with archive footage from the British Film Institute and samples of US and Soviet space missions, their spellbinding show is a self-styled ‘AV Transmission’ that beams our past back at us through vintage TV sets and state-of-the-art video projectors, magically and movingly evoking the story of space in the Cold War ’60s.

With the actual spacecraft and artefacts of the early Russian space programme in Cosmonauts just a short walk from the intimate surrounds of the IMAX theatre, the Science Museum is the ultimate venue in which to experience PSB’s glorious cosmic creativity.
