Dark Side in the Dome at National Space Centre

National Space Centre celebrates Pink Floyd's album anniversary.

To celebrate 50 years of Pink Floyd’s iconic album, the National Space Centre is set to host a brand-new, fulldome experience.

All 10 tracks from the band's The Dark Side of the Moon album will be set to mesmeric 360° visuals on August 12.

Fifty years; what more fitting a place to celebrate and replay the music set to visuals than the UK’s largest Planetarium?

The show itself will be divided between the 10 tracks of the album in chronological order, each having a different theme.

Some will be futuristically looking forward and some a retro acknowledgement to Pink Floyd’s visual history. All will relate to a time and space experience, embracing the latest technology that only a planetarium can offer.

The immersive, all-encompassing surround sound and visual treat will transcend reality and take you way beyond the realms of 2D experience.

It will use the latest audio remastering by James Guthrie and Joel Plante of das boot recording. Fulldome film production is by the multi-award-winning NSC Creative, who worked with Aubrey Powell, Pink Floyd's creative director.

The evening’s two shows are already proving popular, with the 7pm screening selling out already, with just a handful of the 8.30pm seating remaining.

Ticket's for The Dark Side in the Dome experience are on sale now.
