One lucky audience in Cornwall will be able to take a journey into deep space with renowned physicist Professor Brian Cox next year – for one night only.

The professor of particle physics has also become a well-known TV personality in recent years and next year he will touring the UK with a continuation of his sell-out, live arena tour ‘Horizons – A 21st Century Space Odyssey’ – including at Truro’s Hall for Cornwall.

The show has already taken more than a quarter of a million people, spanning three continent,s on a journey through time and space.

It is a story of how we came to be and what we can become, using state-of-the-art screen technology, with venues across the world, from New Zealand to the Arctic Circle, filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes and the latest theories of the origin of the Universe.

It considers questions such as “What is the nature of space and time?”, “How did life begin, how rare might it be and what is the significance of life in the Cosmos?” and “What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal Universe?”

Having travelled the world, Professor Cox is now bringing Horizons back home to the UK for a final journey. He will be in Truro’s Hall for Cornwall on Saturday, March 23, 2024 and while tickets have gone on sale for other venues, at, tickets for his Cornish show do not go on sale until Monday, July 10 this year.
