Step inside our pop-up planetarium and take a trip to the stars! Our mobile dome is an out-of-this-world cosmic resource for schools, science fairs, events and entertainment. Choose from our presenter-led planetarium shows, Experience Days, or fulldome films. Our shows use the very latest digital planetarium software to guide you around the night sky, out into the Solar System and beyond. Shows can be tailored to suit any age and ability, and as these sessions are completely bespoke, we can take you wherever you want to explore! Our presenters have backgrounds in astronomy, astrophysics and planetary science, as well as being right up-to-date with space exploration. This means you can ask them really difficult questions and they should have all the answers! Our immersive fulldome films are truly awesome, with visitors to the dome being surrounded by sound and vision. We have a library of astronomy-themed films to choose from which range from short simulations to full length features. Our inflatable dome holds up to 40 children, up to 35 KS1 or KS2, and up to 30 KS3 and above (plus supporting adults), seated on the floor. The dome is fully accessible for wheelchair users. The planetarium is for indoor use only. For costs and a full list of our shows, go to creative-space.org.uk/mobile-planetarium.
