Welcome To the South Downs Planetarium

The South Downs Planetarium is a registered educational charity, which is run by a dedicated
team of volunteers and astronomy enthusiasts.

It operates throughout the year, but is not open every day and for that reason is not open to casual visitors.

However, the Planetarium is available for private bookings on any day of the week, and we can arrange
special shows for private groups, clubs and societies daytime, evenings or at weekends.

We usually have eight or nine presentations every month which are open to the general public,
but the dates and times vary so please see either our leaflets, call our information line, (see below),
or view the events page for more details.

In addition to the public shows, we accept advance bookings for visits by schools and youth groups,
clubs, societies and adult groups, and for private or corporate hire as required.

To book an event please call our ticket hotline on: 07818 297292
For dates and times of public shows, please call us on: 01243 774400
Or navigate to the events page, where you can check out our latest show info and find out what's on
over the next few months.

We look forward to seeing you and to giving you a warm, friendly welcome to our
amazing Planetarium!
