There’s a new event on the horizon to look forward to in Peterborough next year.
Professor Brian Cox has announced a new arena tour for 2021 and he’ll be heading to the East of England Arena with ‘Horizons. A 2021 Space Odyssey’.
Having set two Guinness World Records with his previous sell-out World Tour, the popular Professor and TV presenter is expected to prove another star attraction and tickets have just gone on sale for the latest show which we get to see on October 24 next year.
Venue director, Jason Lunn commented – “We are thrilled to welcome Professor Brian Cox and Robin Ince back to the East of England Arena and Events Centre. The last show we hosted was a complete sell-out so we are looking forward to opening to a packed arena.”
Horizons takes audiences on a dazzling cinematic journey; a story of how we came to be and what we can become. Using state of the art LED screen technology, Arenas will be filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes and a time before the Big Bang. What is the nature of space and time? Why does the Universe exist? How did life begin, how rare might it be and what is the significance of life in the Cosmos? What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal Universe? The deepest of questions will be explored using the latest advances in our understanding of quantum theory, black holes, biology, planetary science, astronomy and cosmology.
Horizons is a celebration of our civilisation, of our music, art, philosophy and science; an optimistic vision of our future if we continue to explore Nature with humility and to value ourselves and our fellow human beings.
Brian will once again be joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince, perhaps the only collection of sentient atoms in the observable Universe capable of overseeing a Q&A with an audience of 10,000 people whilst wearing an old cardigan.
Professor Brian Cox said: “I loved the 2019 Arena tour because it gave me the opportunity to discuss the most profound ideas with tens of thousands of people in front of the most spectacular images of the Universe. When the tour was over, I immediately started thinking about how I could delve deeper, tell an even more profound story and make the show even more spectacular. I’m very excited about what has emerged! I hope the evening will make people think about how fortunate and precious we are, how strange and wonderful our Universe is, and the limitless future we have to look forward to if we make the right choices over the coming decades.”
Professor Brian Cox CBE is Professor of Particle Physics at The University of Manchester, The Royal Society Professor for Public Engagement in Science and a Fellow of the Royal Society. As a broadcaster, he’s presented a number of highly acclaimed science programmes for the BBC including Wonders of the Solar System, Forces of Nature, Stargazing Live and, in 2019, The Planets and produced several best selling books.
