Get set for the coolest family space journey this winter. Explore the stars and planets of our solar system and discover the icy secrets of space in this exciting live Planetarium show.

Sub-zero Space Adventure is a presenter-led live show.

Blast off from Earth on a sub-zero adventure into the stars. Discover the awesome scale of the solar system as an expert Planetarium pilot whisks you to our neighbouring planets. What do we know about ice and snow on other planets? And how do the colder temperatures affect them? Let’s find out together!

And how exciting is this? There’ll be something new to discover with every visit as the live show whisks you to different corners of the solar system with every adventure.

Accessibility information for Sub-zero Space Adventure

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 Friday, 17th February a British Sign Language interpreter will be signing during the 10.45am and 3.45pm shows. On Sunday, 12th March 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.***
