Bubbletastic weekend

Saturday 29th April - Monday 1st May

Join in the fun during our Bubbletastic Weekend for the Bank Holiday. Create the most spectacular bubbles, find out what it is like to stand in a bubble, try to make the biggest bubble you can and even see if you can make a square bubble - is that really possible? Our bubble wall in the Light and Colour exhibition will also explain what you are looking at and why you see what you see.

No pre-booking required and this activity is FREE as part of your normal admission.

Music and the Stars
7pm - 12.30am: On this special summer Open Evening we are going to entertain you with music from a local band 'The Equatorial Group.' There will also be a bar so sorry children this is for ADULTS ONLY. It will not be dark when the Centre opens but as well as the interactive exhibits to enjoy the band will be playing and the bar will be open throughout the evening. It promises to be a wonderful atmosphere and quite different from a daytime visit. If the weather is good you will also get to see Jupiter and Saturn through the telescopes as well as other fascinating night sky objects. If the weather is not suitable for viewing there will be a planetarium talk in our large white geodesic tent. Normal admission price applies so fantastic value for money and an evening not to be missed! No booking required.
