We Are All Astronauts 

3,2,1 … BLAST OFF! Join bestselling author/illustrator Kate Pankhurst to meet the shining star of We Are All Astronauts – young astronaut in training, Luna Scope.  

Float through the Milky Way with Luna as she discovers exactly what it takes to become a space explorer.  

A session fizzing with space facts, female pioneers of space travel, dressing up and drawing. (No space suits needed, with our feet firmly on Planet Earth we can learn all we can about space – just like astronauts. You could say we are all astronauts!)

Most days, Kate can be found illustrating and writing in her studio in Leeds with her spotty dog, Olive.
