Rocket Fuel

In space, no one can hear your tummy rumble. And on a trip lasting 102 hours, you’re bound to get a little bit peckish.

Inspired by Neil Armstrong’s actual in-flight menu, we’re teaming up with gastronomartist Kaye Winwood to create a delectable dining experience that is truly out of this world. Sample some unique tastes, scents and sensations based on the authentic dishes and drinks which powered Armstrong’s giant leap for mankind, and get a flavour of space travel from the comfort of your very own seat at the Commander’s table.

Rocket Fuel is suitable for vegetarians. Please note that, due to complexity of the event, we cannot accommodate food allergies and intolerances but will try and adapt the menu accordingly with advance notice (at least 2 weeks before the performance). To discuss your requirements, or for more information, contact the Rocket Fuel team at epicentre@little-earthquake.com

The matinee performance of Rocket Fuel will be specially adapted to be family-friendly.
