Nebula 1200x130

Fancy an out-of-this-world 360° educational experience?

We offer a broad range of educational digital dome shows for Key Stages 1-5. Our mobile planetariums are operated by a dedicated team of experienced science communicators and astronomy presenters.

Educational institutions enjoy discounts across all bookings, making our digital dome experiences possible for the equivalent of £1.96 per student (with the 4m dome) down to £1.25 per student (with the 7m dome) and giving your school access to:

  • an unlimited selection of over 135 shows (we proudly hold the largest planetarium show catalogue in the world)
  • an inflatable 4m, 5m, 6m or 7m indoor digital dome for either half a day, full day or split across lunch
  • as many performances as we can squeeze into the time allocated

Please note: this does not include the travel cost of 35p per mile.
