The Space Shed is the Unlimited Space Agency‘s spectacular mobile HQ recently winning ‘Unique’ Shed of the Year! Touring to music, science and arts festivals across the UK, The Space Shed plays host to inspirational storytelling shows, interviews with leading scientists and sets by guest DJs.
In 2010, Unlimited’s artistic director Jon Spooner accidentally set up his own space agency. Based out of his garden shed, the Unlimited Space Agency (UNSA) started as a fun way to tell stories about science to children. UNSA’s early projects had award-winning success, people started to take UNSA seriously and in all honesty, he really liked to wear the space suit that came with the job.
In 2021, Jon (now UNSA’s Director of Human Spaceflight) is working with some of the world’s most prestigious space and science organisations and UNSA’s patron is the British astronaut Tim Peake who took Jon with him to space! (no really he did).
