Poyekhali! Yuri Gagarin & The Dawn of Space Exploration
Photo Exhibition at the Royal Albert Hall
9th June – 4th July at the Royal Albert Hall
This exhibition to mark the 50th anniversary of Gagarin’s spaceflight is hosted in the world-renowned venue in the heart of London. It is organised by Russia’s leading news agency RIA Novosti in collaboration with Science Photo Library.
The exhibition is already open and runs through until July 4th. For one of the most photographed man in his time, this exhibition includes some photos never before seen in public.
If you are going to the Royal Albert Hall for another event between 9th June and 4th July, you can see the exhibition whilst you are there. If not there are three slots specifically designated for the exhibition – for free.
Saturday 25th June: 11.00am to 3.00pm
Saturday 2nd July: 10.00am to 2.00pm
Sunday 3rd July: 11.00am to 3.00pm
There is also a rare talk about Gagarin from Piers Bizony, one of the joint authors of probably the most popular biography of Yuri Gagarin : Starman. The truth behind the Legend of Yuri Gagarin
The talk will cost £10.00 and includes a glass of wine and I hope some non-alcoholic alternatives too. The talk is also at the Royal Albert Hall and will include an opportunity for a private viewing of the exhibition for those attending the talk.
