All the exhibits will be available both indoors and outside plus the shop, cafe and our outdoor catering van, the Launch Box will also be open. The Launch box will be serving delicious burgers and fries and you will be able to purchase drinks and snacks in our cafe. A portion of fries is actually included in the cost of the admission.
Although it will still be light outside you will be plunged into darkness to witness some of the most magnificent sights of our awesome night sky in a fantastic, planetarium show in one of our magnificent domes.
Due to the COVID restrictions still being in place (at the time of writing), to give you the best and safest experience possible, you will be assigned to a group of no more than 18 for your planetarium experience. This means you can remain suitably socially distanced. Your planetarium show will be timetabled but dont be late, we won't be able to squeeze you in to a different show (doors open at 4pm).
An email will be sent to you when you make your booking with important information for you to read.
- We cannot admit under 4s to this event.
- The Planetarium show is presented in one of our domes which is on the first floor. This dome can only be accessed by 2 flights of stairs.
