It's not very often you get the chance to see a genuine moonwalker. There were only 12 of them. And it's even rarer that the opportunity arises to see one of the very first. Buzz Aldrin will give a talk at the Southbank Centre on 4 July, almost 40 years to the week after he and Neil Armstrong made those famous small steps. Buzz is a living, breathing historical character whose name will be remembered centuries, perhaps millennia from now, so you might want to book your tickets pronto. They're as precious as moon dust.
The talk is part of the London Literature Festival (2-16 July), with Buzz there to talk about his memoirs 'Magnificent Desolation'. The wider festival also includes talks by Arundhati Roy, Benjamin Zephaniah, Sarah Waters, Peter Ackroyd and many more.
