The Planetarium

The Planetarium is the most incredible auditorium. You'll have a 360° fulldome screen, reclined seating and presentation stage just for you and your guests. It's the perfect place for events like presentations, prize-giving ceremonies and lectures. You can even add on a live Planetarium show as a special treat for your guests.

Exhibition Floor

Want something completely different for your event? Why not hire the exhibition floor and let everyone experience awesome STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) fun. There's a 10-metre guitar, acoustic rocket and lots of exhibits to see, hear and touch. Your guests can even blast off from the Explorer:Space zone.
