This show will take you on a tour from the familiar realm of planet Earth to the largest structures in the Universe. Learn about the differences between planets, stars, galaxies and galaxy clusters as we delve in to just how big space really is. Immerse yourself in the wonders of the night sky inside Science Oxford’s inflatable planetarium. With a 360-degree view of the Moon, Sun, stars and planets above, take a tour of our Universe, with an out-of-this-world space show designed for families to enjoy together. Children (individuals or groups) must be accompanied by an adult and tickets booked for all participants.

This 30 minute show is repeated at 1pm and 3pm. Click the ‘Book now’ button to book for either of these sessions.

COVID security
With a sizable number of staff, performers, volunteers, and indeed the public, not yet fully vaccinated, we encourage our visitors to continue wearing masks and to practice social distancing so that we can all feel safe and protected. We see this as an important step to protecting everyone involved in creating culture in Oxford, and kindly request that visitors remain considerate during this time. In the event of a change in COVID status, the Festival reserves the right to convert in-person events to digital if required and will inform all ticket holders of any changes.
