Planetarium: constellations

Performance | Environment & Nature, Physics, Space

Throughout time, humans have gazed up at the stars and told stories about the patterns they see. Learn about these patterns we call constellations and asterisms, how to spot the North star, and what you can see in the night sky tonight. 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. This show is particularly recommended for younger children. Children (individuals or groups) must be accompanied by an adult, and tickets booked for all participants.

This 30-minute show is repeated at 12pm and 2pm. Click the ‘Book now’ button to book for either of these sessions. 

IF Oxford uses Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing so you can choose to pay whatever you want, or can afford. You can make your donation during booking or after the event and the amount you pay is up to you. A suggested donation of £5 per person for each event enjoyed will help secure the future of the Festival. IF Oxford is run by The Oxfordshire Science Festival (charity #1151361) and your donation may be eligible for Gift Aid, where a charity can claim back an extra 20% of your donation at no cost to you.

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.
