Atmospheres - live Planetarium show

Dates: 16th March to 6th May 2024 Weekends and school holidays
Location: Planetarium
Duration: 30 minutes
Tickets: £4 plus general admission

Let’s blast off into the Solar System for an out-of-this-world family adventure. What will you discover as you zoom past moons and explore the hidden secrets of the planets?

Atmospheres is a presenter-led live show that is a perfect introduction to the stars and planets. It’s great for the whole family.

Blast off from Earth on an adventure into the stars. Discover the awesome scale of the solar system as an expert Planetarium pilot whisks you to our neighbouring planets. We’re on a mission to explore beyond the atmosphere of our planet. Every planet is unique, including our own. What do their atmospheres tell us about them? What secrets will they reveal?

Please be aware that all of our Planetarium shows can be viewed by every age group and are not quiet shows.

Accessibility information for Atmospheres

The Planetarium is accessible so everyone can have a special experience here. Planetarium shows are unusual and exciting experiences.  All our shows are relaxed and fun with calm presentations. We call them 'chatterbox shows'.  If you want to call out, ask questions or swap ideas with your group about what you can see, go right ahead.

It's not super dark and you can move around, go out and come back in if you like. If you have a wheelchair, we have spaces for you to sit with seats for your family and friends. The stairs have lights to make them easy to see. 

We've got super 3D printed models and NASA's official tactile books. You can use them when you watch the show. We also have an induction loop. Sensitive to loud noises? You can borrow ear defenders from us before the show starts.

***On Sunday, 17th March, and Tuesday, 2nd April, a British Sign Language interpreter will be signing during the 10.15am and 4pm shows. Talk to our Accessibility team so we can reserve a seat for you near the front.***
