AstroTots Planetarium: Stars, Shapes & Colours

Ready to embark on a celestial adventure? This family-friendly pop-up planetarium experience is the perfect outing for families with young children seeking an enriching yet fuss-free experience this December.

Children can play and be themselves with a planetarium show specially designed for your little ones and full of vibrant hues and captivating cosmos sights!

Babies and toddlers will be wide-eyed as the planetarium ‘opens’ to reveal the sky above in a 360° show jam-packed with twinkling stars, the milky way, and the occasional shooting star! Your tots will see the dots become constellations and transform into colourful heroes and creatures from mythology.

Then it’s time to strap into the spaceship and zoom in for a trip around the moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn for an extraterrestrial exploration of our solar system.

On the return to Earth it’s time for a winter wonderland with glimmering stars, brilliant Christmas trees, shimmering aurorae, and mesmerising 360° art.

Join us for a child-friendly event that's out of this world!
