Horizons. A 2021 Space Odyssey with Professor Brian Cox

Tickets available

'A Jaw-dropping reminder that human life is both irrelevant and hugely precious.’ ****

The Guardian

Event Details

Having set two Guinness World Records with his previous sell-out World Tour, Professor Brian Cox is back with a brand-new Arena show for 2021.

Horizons takes audiences on a dazzling cinematic journey; a story of how we came to be and what we can become. Using state of the art LED screen technology, Utilita Arena Birmingham will be filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes and a time before the Big Bang. What is the nature of space and time? Why does the Universe exist? How did life begin, how rare might it be and what is the significance of life in the Cosmos? What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal Universe?  The deepest of questions will be explored using the latest advances in our understanding of quantum theory, black holes, biology, planetary science, astronomy and cosmology.  

Horizons is a celebration of our civilisation, of our music, art, philosophy and science; an optimistic vision of our future if we continue to explore Nature with humility and to value ourselves and our fellow human beings.

Brian will once again be joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince, perhaps the only collection of sentient atoms in the observable Universe capable of overseeing a Q&A with an audience of 10,000 people whilst wearing an old cardigan. 

‘Science and cosmology doesn’t get any more dazzling and interesting than this – a wonderful journey through space and time orchestrated by Professor Brian Cox.’ Daily Echo

‘Stunning’ ****Liverpool Echo

‘Is your brain hurting yet? Because mine certainly was, but in beautifully, mind-expanding sort of way…We came away with a new found of love of the basics of science and maths, and a thirst to learn more’ Express and Star

    With 2 floors of bars and food kiosks there is plenty of choice, no matter where you are in the Arena. Take a look our map and find your favourite place to eat! 

    Get in early to grab yourself a bite to eat and take your pick from our range of tasty food on offer:

    Theo's Street Food (ground floor)

    Neo Pizza (ground floor) 

    Fish & Chips (so good its on both floors) 

    The Burger Kitchen (on the second floor)  

    Just after a drink? All our food outlets serve bottled beers, ciders, wine and soft drinks but visit one of our 11 bars for a beer or cider from our legendary 2 pint cups! 

    Keep an eye out for our speakeasy inside the arena - The Garrison (find us opposite Block 11). This boozer is a haven from the busy concourse and the perfect place to get comfortable in the nook and enjoy a local Peaky Blinder ale or G&T from our Whitley Neill gin menu.
