The goal was set on May 25, 1961, by President John F Kennedy, with the goal achieved just over eight years later.

President Kennedy said at the time: "We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard…"

Amid the considerable technological constraints of 55 years ago, the Apollo mission's achievements are still considered one of humanity's greatest.

This event offers those who were there at the time the chance to relive their memories of the event.

Meanwhile, younger audiences will be able to take a step back in time and appreciate the foremost technological achievement of the era.

The occasion will be marked on Wednesday, July 17 at Alston Town Hall.
