Voting closes for this year's Shed of the Year competition tomorrow (August 29) at noon. One of our favourites, a finalist in the 'Unique' category, is the mobile Space Shed run by the Unlimited Space Agency.
It was founded in 2010 by Unlimited’s artistic director Jon Spooner who set up his own space agency from his garden shed as an intriguing way to tell children all about science through theatre and storytelling. The shed is mobile so regularly attends festivals and events in other public places including theatres and museums. And at night, it doubles up to become a kind of disco shed.
It's certainly got the vote of astronaut Tim Peake who wrote on Facebook: "The fabulous Unlimited Space Agency’s Space Shed has been shortlisted for #ShedOfTheYear! They do great work inspiring young people in #science and #space so please give them your vote."
