New space-themed hub for Hull shopping centre

Must read

Families will soon be able to enjoy an inter-galactic experience in Hull, UK, as a new space-themed venue is coming to the Prospect Shopping Centre.

Hull City Council has granted £158,044.50 to Roman Adventures, trading as Little Astronauts, for a facility on the top storey of the shopping centre.

The funding has come from the council’s government-backed Levelling Up Fund and will transform the neglected area into a space-themed play and educational hub which will be supported by a food and beverage offering.

Almost 700sq.m of unused floor space will be brought back into use, while 13.5 full-time equivalent jobs will be created.

The award is being match-funded by Roman Adventures, meaning more than £150,000 of private capital will also be invested into the city centre.
