Stargazing Live, hosted by Dr Brian Cox and Dara O Briain, will see the Sun at Night set up at the Royal Holloway University in London.

The Sun at Night was first set up in Preston during November, when David Henckel and Dan Wilkinson, took over the covered market for a weekend.

David said: ” David said: “The Preston event got a great reaction and we attracted over 300 people.

“We’re really excited to take the Sun at Night on the road and share it with a wider audience. There is no guarantee it will be on TV but we stand a good chance.”

The project was funded by UCLan and Arts Council England.
