Daily show times are available on arrival.

We have two exciting planetarium shows running at Life. Please note: from 16 – 30 January, the planetarium will be closed to the public as it has an exciting upgrade.

Show 1: A View from Space

Discover what Earth looks like from space in this family-friendly planetarium show.  

We know that sending satellites into space allows us to explore the cosmos and increase our understanding of the Universe. But did you know that there are some satellites that look down on Earth? 

Some satellites help us see amazing detail of the surface of our planet. Information from the sensors allow us to see changes over time, including the impact that humans have on our world, and they even let us monitor groups of animals in remote locations. 

Show 2: Little Bear

An enchanting planetarium show especially for under 7s. 

Little Bear goes stargazing and finds many dot-to-dot animals including a whale, a swan and a lion. They keep on looking until they find a little bear, just like them, in the night sky. 

The planetarium is equipped with an analogue induction loop and has spaces for wheelchairs.

During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
