Helen Sharman became the first British Astronaut in May 1991, aged 27, when she launched on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. She spent 8 days orbiting the Earth, living and working on the Mir Space Station.

A pioneer, role model and inspirational speaker, Helen will host an unforgettable evening beneath Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon in the Nave of Lincoln Cathedral as she takes us on a journey through her experiences – from recruitment and training through to the time she spent in space and her return to Earth.

“We should push forward, not only our individual boundaries, but also the boundaries of what humans believe is possible. People are the biggest limitations in our own lives. There’s a huge amount we can do and we should make the best use of our lives for the benefit of the world.” – Helen Sharman CMG OBE
