Barraclough illuminates solar science with a poet’s gaze

Dr Marek Kukula, Royal Observatory Greenwich

Sunspots is a poetic, musical and visual journey from the birth of the Sun, through its long and eventful life, towards its ultimate death. Simon Barraclough (poet in residence, Mullard Space Science Laboratory) is your guide on a journey that mixes fact, fiction, humour and joy. This hour-long show fuses words, film and songs that vary in style from infectiously poppy to broodingly intense to create an exciting and moving experience that reinvigorates our neighbourhood star.

Features music by Simon Barraclough / Oliver Barrett and film by Jack Wake-Walker
