30 July - 29 August 2022


Continuing our intergalactic journey, we travelled across the Irish Sea to Cambridge in late July where the trail started on Midsummer Common before winding its way along the River Cam, ending in Waterbeach.

About the Trail

Our mega-mini (but still quite large) model of the solar system landed in Cambridge with a bang as we celebrated on Midsummer Common. From meeting NASA Astronaut Kayla Barron, an Oliver Jeffers book signing and a critical mass ride from the Sun to Saturn, we had an absolute blast!
