Ted’s Space Adventure is the Royal Observatory’s planetarium show aimed at younger audiences (3-7 year olds).

We’ll explore the Solar System with a bear named Ted (and companion Plant!), learning about the things we find there and how they affect us.

Ted’s Space Adventure is presented by an astronomer from the Royal Observatory Greenwich. With interactivity, music and rhyme, the show is a must for preschool children!

Check out the full list of upcoming planetarium shows and events here.

Show times

Ted's Space Adventure runs at 11:30am on weekends and during school holidays.
