Join us for a fun evening at Half-Term Starry Nights For Families on 2nd November 2023!
Inspire the budding astronauts or astronomers in your family at our show. Learn about our solar system, what stars are and where we all come from. Hold a piece of space rock and take part in our space – themed quiz with out of this world prizes!
We’ll have powerful telescopes and weather permitting, we’ll gaze at far-off worlds and galaxies, count shooting stars and satellites and maybe even see the Northern Lights!
We will be on hand to answer all the questions you might have and help you navigate the night sky.
Whether you’re a seasoned stargazer or just starting to explore the wonders of the night sky, Half-Term Starry Nights For Families is the perfect event to ignite your curiosity and create lasting memories.
