Santa's Christmas Countdown

This festive season experience Santa's Christmas Eve journey through the stars in our two festive Planetarium shows, Santa's Christmas Countdown, suitable for our younger visitors, and Santa's Festive Flight, suitable for all audiences. 

Shows will run on weekends and school holidays between 4 and 24 December before returning to the magical Simply Space, for younger visitors, and spectacular The Planet Show, suitable for all audiences, between 27 December and 4 January.

Please note that Santa won't be joining you on your festive space mission, however he will be making a special guest appearance in our free live science show so make sure you reserve your tickets during the booking process. 

Santa’s on his countdown to Christmas Eve and he needs help from his friends in the Planetarium to collect some last minute essentials from around the Solar System for his journey through the stars

Head off on a festive space exploration mission and marvel at the magic of the Solar System as it speeds by on our spectacular 360° dome. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenter will take you on a journey through the universe to discover more about our planets, stars and constellations whilst collecting a few important items for Santa along the way.

At Winchester Science Centre we offer different planetarium show environments and Santa's Christmas Countdown is available as a chatterbox and relaxed show. To find out more about these, click here.


£3.50 with General Admission. Whilst we are having to limit our admission to the Science Centre we are unable to provide standalone Planetarium tickets.

All tickets must be purchased in advance online with a general entry ticket to the Science Centre.
