Celebrate Towel Day at the National Space Centre
“A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.” Douglas Adams
On Saturday 25 May grab your towel and hitchhike to the National Space Centre for a special Film Club screening of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in the UK’s largest planetarium to celebrate Towel Day.
Possibly the only occasion where the acceptable dress code is pajamas and a dressing gown, attendees are invited to bring a towel for extra comfort and some very special deals.
The screening is part of ‘Towel Day’, an annual worldwide celebration of the life and work of author Douglas Adams, who wrote Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
The restaurant at the end of the National Space Centre will also be serving its very own take on the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster before the screening.
Described as the “the alcoholic equivalent of a mugging – expensive and bad for the head” and that the effect of one “is like having your brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick”, the Centre’s version guarantees to be a much more enjoyable experience!
