Join us for a night with the winter stars. Our astronomy experts will take you on a whistle stop tour of the universe on the big screen. You will learn about stars, planets and galaxies and our place in the universe. Then we will head outside and use telescopes and binoculars to go in search of sparkling star clusters, distant galaxies and some giant planets. The content of this evening is best suited to adults and children over 12 years old.
Please note if the weather is poor or cloudy the event will still go ahead. Our astronomers will instead take more time to take you on a virtual tour of the universe on the screen!
