Life in the Universe - Online

Sorry folks, this experience isn't available at the moment. There's lots of other events to enjoy though - find out what's on


Is there anybody else out there? What might they be like? And what would happen if we ever met?

The silver dome may be closed for now, but Planetarium Nights are back as we beam our newest show, ‘Life in the Universe’, direct to your sofa through Zoom.

Join us on a quest for alien life that takes us far beyond the solar system, to distant exo-planets and imagined worlds very different from our own.

Discover how astronomers search for planets, explore how and where life could evolve and consider how an encounter with alien life might work out for humanity.

This is a fun, interactive show using our advanced planetarium software and led by our team of experienced presenters.

How it works 

Our virtual Planetarium shows are run on Zoom. Tickets cost £5 per device.

Capacity for each show is very limited, so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!

Once you’ve booked, you will receive an email confirmation. The Zoom link will be sent to you in a separate email shortly before the show. To fully enjoy the experience, we recommend use of a desktop (or laptop computer) with strong, stable internet connection.

Shows last 60 minutes and are best suited to older children age 10+ and adults. Children aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. 

We’re running the shows on Zoom as we wanted to recreate the interactive fun of our live shows in the dome as closely as possible. Please do join in as much or as little as you like!

Shows are selling out fast, so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. All ticket sales help us to continue our work as an educational charity.

Any questions?

If you have any questions, please drop us an email at and we will come back to you as soon as possible. As our venue is currently closed, our phone lines aren’t open at the moment.
