Our Shows

We have a selection of shows available. Some include a narration track, while others are presented by our volunteers.

Each showing needs another 10-15 minutes on top of the runtime for our H&S talk, ingress and egress, and a little time for some questions. The dome can accommodate up to a maximum of 20 small (primary age) children at a time (plus our volunteers and a couple of teachers/staff). Capacity decreases if your students are older!

Additional Activities

In addition to these shows, we are able to use the Stellarium software to project the night sky onto our dome
- handy for looking at constellations without cloud cover!

Our volunteers are also happy to conduct dedicated Question and Answer sessions (as well as any impromptu questions at the end of the show in the dome), about any and all areas of astronomy!
