The theme of the event was science, art and fun facts about asteroids. Composed of two parts, astronomer Nick Oberg gave an illustrated lecture titled “The Living Cosmos”. The event was followed by an interactive pub quiz where teams of up to 5 people played for free tickets to a show at their local planetarium!
