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 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.

Yes! This show is suitable for ages 7+. Children under 5 will not be admitted. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Planetarium shows last up to 30 minutes.
The planetarium is part of the Royal Observatory, at the top of a hill with spectacular views across London. Please allow enough time to get to us and aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before the show’s start time, as latecomers cannot be admitted.
Pushchairs are not allowed into the planetarium itself but there is a designated buggy park in the foyer.
You do not need a Royal Observatory ticket to visit the Planetarium. However, if you would also like to visit the historic observatory then you can book a separate ticket here.
Companions to disabled visitors are entitled to free admission. These tickets can be selected online when booking any paid ticket. Please contact the Bookings Team on 0208 312 6608 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries.
