You can get a sneak preview of our Elmer in Elmer’s Great North Parade on our Space Takeover Day – we’re excited to welcome our patchwork figure Elmer Armstrong for a special appearance before the trail begins in August. Created by artist Mik Richardson, Elmer Armstrong celebrates the first man to walk on the Moon – Neil Armstrong, and will be in our Atrium for visitors to meet on the day!
