We'll be adding to this page in the build-up to the New Year, so check back for more great ideas and resources.

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.
We invite you to join us for a virtual planetarium show presented by an astronomer in their native language, to be followed by a short Q&A session.
This programme is intended for bilingual or multilingual families who wish to explore the Universe with us in a language other than English.
