UCA was formed 50 years ago in 1968, in the era of
The Space Race, the competition between 2 rivals;
the Soviet Union and the United States. December
1968 saw the launch of Apollo 8, the first manned
space mission to orbit the moon and in July 1969 the
race was won when U.S. astronauts walked on the
moon. This year we are commemorating our shared
history with an “Out of This World” theme party.
At this event you will
see a wide variety of space characters and things;
astronauts, planets, stars, Martians and aliens.
You will also meet
characters from current and retro space movies,
television and cartoons such as Star Wars, Star
Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, Lost in
Space, Stargate, Power Rangers, My Favourite
Martian, Buck Rogers, Futurama and the Jetsons.
as “Out of this World” can also mean excellent,
amazing or extraordinary … have fun with it, let
your imagination run wild as, anything goes!
Everyone will come in costume prepared to have an
“Out of this World” experience!
