Join us for Starstruck, a live planetarium show presented by an astronomer from the Royal Observatory Greenwich. 

When you look at the night sky, you might wonder: what are all those twinkling lights? Why are they different colours? Where do they come from? Will they ever disappear? Are they home to planets?

This brand-new show will explore the lives of stars, from birth to death, and everything in between!

Recommended ages 7+. Under-5s will not be admitted – Ted's Space Adventure is suitable for younger children.

Show times

From July until the end of September, Starstruck will run Wednesday-Monday during term time (apart from select planetarium maintenance days) and daily during school holidays.
