Magical Mystery Tour

Join our presenter on a Magical Mystery Tour of the Universe!

These monthly tours all start on Earth before flying through the solar system, and perhaps further still!

Adapted from Flight Through the Universe, Magical Mystery Tours give the planetarium presenter the freedom to change the format of the show to spend longer on their favourite sections, or to add in new topics that particularly excite them or which are currently in the news.

Each show is a unique experience, with nothing fixed in advance - nobody knows exactly what will happen, but we can guarantee that a variety of topics will be explored through the season. Ideas for future topics and themes are very welcome.

These shows are aimed at children aged 8yr+, although the content is likely also to be interesting for non-specialist adults! Younger children are also welcome to enjoy the ride.

Every showing is a Chatterbox show, meaning that audience members can chat or call out. Perfect for those with toddlers in their group, or for anyone with special needs who would naturally vocalise their enjoyment.


Premium rate of £7.50, or £5 if also buying entry to the hands-on exhibition.

This show is available at a special rate for Home Educators
