Secret of the Cardboard Rocket: SEN friendly

Perfect for younger children

Join two young explorers as they blast off in a homemade rocket-ship to explore our solar system. Visit all the eight planets and Pluto to discover how different they all are from Earth before flying back safely home.

A beautifully child-centred approach makes this the best choice astronomy show for children under 8yrs, although it is popular with children up to 11yr. It has lovely music and gentle drama as the cardboard rocket battles the winds on Jupiter and explores windy Mars. Children will be able to follow the story and even help the characters - where is that red button?!

Autism friendly screening: There will be low lighting left on in the planetarium throughout the show, and sound levels will be set slightly lower than in normal public shows. Visitors are free to vocalise their enjoyment and as in all shows, staff will be close at hand to help anyone who needs to exit during the show.

Tickets

£3.50 with general admission and £6.60 standalone.
