Magical Mystery Tour (autism-friendly)

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

This journey starts on Earth observing the night time sky before flying through the solar system, and perhaps further still!

Updated for 2018: The Magical Mystery Tour shows run on Home Educator Days and give the planetarium presenter the freedom to change the show to cater for the needs and interests of the group, or to add in new topics that may be of particular interest 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.

Autism-Friendly Shows

Our autism-friendly shows are designed to be welcoming and inviting to those with sensory sensitivities and their loved ones. Sensory-friendly adjustments include:

  • Lights left on low
  • Sound turned down
  • Freedom to move around and sit where you like
  • Freedom to leave and re-enter the theatre
