Our planetarium was purchased through financial support from the Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation. Providing a wrap-around projection it can be used for many different applications. Examples include science and arts-related films. We currently have a number of space and astronomy related showings where visitors can learn about the stars and planets in an exciting way.
Shows run throughout the Centre’s opening times and a small additional surcharge (currently £2 pp).
A number of schools and clubs have already visited this facility. We have future plans for evening shows for astronomy or general science-related activities.
Although a ‘mobile’ planetarium it does however require a minimum floor area measuring 9m x 9m x 4.6m high, plus external power and is for indoor use only.

Some of the shows have been generously donated by the British Fulldome Institute.
