UK-exclusive event for Tim Peake launch

In a UK-exclusive launch event for his new book, Ask an Astronaut (Century), Tim Peake will appear in conversation with actor and "The Gadget Show" TV presenter Dallas Campbell at the Barbican Hall this October.

Peake will draw on his experiences as the first British ESA astronaut to visit the International Space Station (ISS) and reflect on "some of the most interesting, funny and curious" questions he has been asked since his return to Earth during the event.

Produced by Penguin Live, the appearance will include a Q&A with the audience and also see Peake sign copies of his book.

The personal account of being an astronaut, which he said he hoped would "continue to motivate readers to find out more about space", publishes with Century on 19th October.

Scheduled to take place on 24th October at 7.30pm, at the Barbican Hall in London, tickets for the event (priced £15 for adults, £7.50 for children) will go on sale on 13th September at 11am.
