Professor Brian Cox – Horizons: A 21st Century Space Odyssey

Having set two Guinness World Records with his previous sell-out world tour, Professor Brian Cox is back in regional theatres to see off the sell-out arena tour Horizons.

Horizons has taken over 250,000 people across three continents on a dazzling journey – a story of how we came to be and what we can become. 

Using state-of-the-art screen technology, venues across the world – from New Zealand to the Arctic Circle – have been filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes and the latest theories of the origin of the Universe.

What is the nature of space and time? How did life begin, how rare might it be, and what is the significance of life in the Cosmos? What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal Universe? 

Having travelled the world, it’s now time to bring Horizons back home to the UK for a final journey around our magnificent and baffling Universe.

Horizons is a celebration of our civilisation – our music, art, philosophy and science. It is an optimistic vision of our future if we continue to explore nature with humility and value ourselves and our fellow human beings.


Science and cosmology doesn’t get any more dazzling and interesting than this – a wonderful journey through space and time orchestrated by Professor Brian Cox

Daily Echo

Is your brain hurting yet? Because mine certainly was, but in a beautifully mind-expanding sort of way…. We came away with a newfound love of the basics of science and maths and a thirst to learn more
