Our Sun is just one of the billions of stars that make up our galaxy. But are all those other points of light in our sky the same as our own, perhaps even with systems of planets around them? Explore the space beyond our solar system and learn all about the lives of stars, from birth all the way through to death. 

Ages: 7+ 

Space Queries and Theories

Join us for a Question and Answer session with a Royal Observatory astronomer! Our astronomers will be giving a short introduction about about a topic in astronomy and then the audience, adults and children alike, will be able to ask questions about all-things related to space.
From understanding dark matter to finding out what happens when you fall inside a black hole, you’ll be able to find out everything you wanted to know about our Universe!

Common Salt

Common Salt is a performance around a table – a ‘show and tell’.

It explores the colonial and geographical history of Britain and India. It takes an expansive and emotional travel through time, from the first Enclosure Act and the start of the East India Company in 1600 to contemporary narratives of trade, race and culture.

Sheila Ghelani and Sue Palmer activate insights into our shared past, laying out a ‘home museum’ of objects and stories.

SENsory Social Club

The SENsory Social Club Online is a weekly club for adults and young people with SEND to meet and engage with the collection in a fun and interactive way. 

Join us as we make new friends, have fun and learn new skills through a wide range of activities from story-telling, music, acting, craft and games. You can logon each week either at home or part of your community group/college class.

To help us create a fun experience tailored to your needs, please email us in advance.
