Calling all little learners, astronomers and space fanatics! This one’s for you...

This October half term, get ready to discover the wonders of the universe, right at our Centre!

Step inside our giant space dome and get lost in the beauty of the midnight sky with superb space shows organised throughout the day. Featuring 360° projections of outer space, visitors will get the chance to witness talks from astronomers and scientists whilst gazing at the stars above... but that’s not all.

Visitors can delve further into the depths of the universe and watch their world come to life with VR headsets and AR Games (Augmented Reality) activities which you can get involved in from our tablets. And if that’s not given you a true taste of space, this part certainly will! In true Armstrong style, your little ones will be able to dress up in miniature space suits, try astronaut ice cream and even handle a REAL meteorite, 4.6 billion years old!

A perfect day out for family and friends, it’s an event you don’t want to miss. Event runs from 11am – 4pm on the 26th & 27th of October 2021. Booking isn’t required and activities will be available on a first come first serve basis. Please keep in mind due to the current circumstances surrounding Coronavirus, the operation of this event (including dates and times) may be subject to change.
