What We Do

“A great opportunity to take science seriously and make it fun too! I loved the heat camera, the nail polish experiment and the planetarium. Would like to take my son to visit again.”

Anon, Space@TheStade: The Spectrum of Space, Stade Hall, Hastings

We make astronomy and space science come alive through community projects, public talks, events, workshops and virtual planetarium shows, plus our amazing Astronomy School.

Astronomy outreach and public engagement is what we do best. We have a passion for all things space and have developed a range of creative, interactive ways to share this passion with you.

Right now, due to COVID-19, we’re unable to bring our mobile planetarium to you. Instead, we’re offering a range of interactive astronomy shows, with live Q&A, virtually via Zoom.

Space Events

Our astronomy and space events are suitable for all ages and abilities and are fully inclusive. Our innovative approach to outreach education engages our audiences in a fun and creative way.

“Thank you so much for sharing your time, knowledge and resources! The children thoroughly enjoyed their sessions, as did the adults. There wasn’t anyone who didn’t learn something new. It was a real treat to have an expert answering some of the more difficult and searching questions and gave us teachers the chance to sit back and marvel at the children’s curiosity.”
