After Hours: LOVE (18+)

In anticipation of Valentine's Day, our February After Hours takes a romantic theme and promises to be a different kind of night out for lovers, and friends.

For this adults-only opening, the venue will come alive after dark with music, stargazing, cocktails, and some intriguing games and activities exploring the science connected with this most wonderful of emotions. 

Get yourselves a drink and enjoy our two floors of exhibits without the kids around. Pause to listen and reflect in our new exhibition in The Box gallery, Tipping Point, by artist Kathy Hinde, and head upstairs to the Planetarium to enjoy a cosmic perspective - escape into the beauty of the Winter's night sky, journey to magnificent Jupiter, visit the Orion nebula and hear the life story of the stars.

What is Gift Aid?

If you’re a UK taxpayer and make a donation of at least 10%, as a charity, We The Curious can claim an extra 25p in every pound from the Government (registered charity number 1049954).

It’s called a Gift Aid visit and, it makes a huge difference to charities like us. As a big thank you, we will give you back your donation in vouchers to spend in our café or shop! Your donations will go towards our learning and local community projects. Thank you!
