Dress up in your own Star Wars costumes and have your lightsabers at the ready as we will be giving out spot prizes for the best Fancy Dress.

As well as the Storm Troopers maintaining order around the building there will be a host of other activities such as rocket launching, face painting and spacey arts and crafts!

Meeting your Star Wars favourite characters and the Planetarium’s exhibition areas are FREE of charge.  We will also have our regular theatre shows playing which should be pre-booked in advance (normal admission charges apply).  Please visit our website for more information on shows and show times.
