How is normal operation affected by Covid-19?
We are working hard to keep everyone safe when they visit the planetarium. Shows will have a new lower capacity of 15 in order to allow more space between customers, and we ask that you wear a face covering during your visit if you are able to. The planetarium is ventilated before each show and our presenter will be monitoring the air quality using a specialist device.
What are your opening times?
The planetarium is open for public shows twice a month on Fridays at 7:30pm. The shows change regularly, and we sometimes have shows at different times in the school holidays. Keep an eye on our What’s On page to find out what’s showing!
What kind of shows do you put on?
We have 3 main types of show. The first is our full dome films, which are constantly changing. This show consists of a night sky update as a live presentation, and a showing of the selected film. We also put on our monthly shows, Stellar Safari and The Starlight Odyssey Sessions. Visit their individual pages for more information.
Do I need to be an expert?
No! All of our shows can be enjoyed without any prior knowledge, though some shows cover more advanced topics than others.
