About This Show

15th May @ 3:30pm

Duration 60min Approx

Earth has just one Moon, but other planets have dozens of Moons orbiting around them. Our Moon is a barren, airless, lifeless world pockmarked by thousands of craters.

Some 'Moons' of other planets have active volcanoes, ice geysers, oceans of water beneath their surfaces, and one has a deep atmosphere and a frozen surface with lakes of liquid petroleum gas!

Come to the Planetarium for a spectacular journey around the many amazing Moons of our Solar System.

Prices and Admission

Opening Times

Because we are a charity run by volunteers we are only open for the public shows from 45 minutes before the published show time. Therefore there is no facility to accomodate casual vistors.


The seats in the Dome are Aircraft seats set at an angle to provide the best possible view. These seats do not recline, they do however tilt forwards slightly to provide easy access to the rows behind when entering and leaving.
