24 Hour Space Show – Companies….I Need You!

IMG_3423No stranger to public speaking, Mark is embarking on perhaps the most ambitious live science show ever undertaken.

In October 2015 Mark will be presenting his 24 Hour Space Spectacular at the Royal Institution in London! The event, which is being arranged in aid of Marie Curie will take audiences on an ambitious and fascinating journey around the entire Universe in the time it takes the Earth to spin once on its axis.

During half term and as a grand finale event for World Space Week Mark will present 24 x 40 minute lectures on a whole host of topics from planets to exoploanets, stars to black holes and the history of space travel to the fate of the Universe. Tickets will be sold for each of the shows throughout the 24 hour period but the one thing that stands between Mark and this event which hopes to raise in excess of £40,000 for charity is the cost of staging the event. Mark is now looking for companies to partner him by sponsoring the individual shows with a sponsorship of £500 for shows starting between 11pm to 10am and £1,000 for the those running between 11am 10pm.

There will be benefits to sponsoring companies too. I will tweet about your support to my 73.6k followers, your company name and logo will have pride of place on the title and end slide of the show you sponsor and your logo will appear on the event website which will be launched Q1 2015 and on all printed media. If you are interested in sponsoring one of the shows (or more) then please get in touch with mark and his team at 24HrSpaceSpectacular@markthompsonastronomy.com or contact Mark directly via twitter
