The event, So Long, Soyuz!, starts at 6.30pm and will begin with sparklers in the Cathedral Cloisters, with hot dogs on sale. Then inside the cathedral some classic space-themed TV episodes will be screened, as well as Tim Peake’s video message. There will then be a final opportunity to view the exhibition, take photographs, or pose with the ‘selfie spacesuit’ before everything is packed away.
