Winchester Science Centre & Planetarium offers an exciting, daily programme of special events for the school holidays

Astronaut Science Shows and Hands-on Activities

Astronaut Science Shows will be available throughout the day as part of a national programme to celebrate Tim Peake's preparation to go into space. Science shows offer amazing demonstrations and supersonic science experiments including building rockets, launching astronauts and learning about life on the International Space Station. Science shows and hands-on activities are free of charge after paying for general entry to the exhibition.

Planetarium Shows

The special, extended programme of planetarium shows includes hour-long live planetarium shows (as stand-alone tickets or with a General Entry) and a new planetarium film titled "We Are Stars" which the Science Centre’s very own Dr Jenny Shipway was involved in making.
