Sit back, relax and let the stars reveal their secrets. Shoot into space and discover the hidden mysteries of the constellations in this exhilarating live Planetarium show.

Secrets of the Stars is a presenter-led live show.

For thousands of years people have looked into the sky and told stories about what they can see. Shapes were formed from the shapes in the stars and stories were put to them. These stories have been passed down through generations and we still tell them today. What constellations stories can be told from the stars in the Planetarium? And what galaxies will we fly to when as these stories are retold? Let’s find out together.

Accessibility information for Secrets of the Stars

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 Wednesday, 31st May and Saturday, 24th June 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.***
