Santa and his elves are back at Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium and this time they are joined by Jack and the beanstalk! A Christmas experience like no other with a live science show inspired by the classic children’s tale, an elf-led activity, Christmas planetarium show and chance to meet Santa, tickets are expected to sell quickly.
The Santa and the Elves Christmas Experience unites the magic of Christmas with the excitement of science, promising a fun-filled family day out this festive season. The experience comprises two main events, an hour-long Santa and science experience – live science show, elf-led children’s activity and chance to meet Santa – and a 30-minute Reindeer Round-up in Space planetarium show.
The live science show, inspired by and featuring Jack and the Beanstalk, investigates different forces as the audience try and help Jack reach the very top of his beanstalk. The elf-led workshop that follows gives children the opportunity to take part in a themed activity and meet Santa, who gives each child a wrapped gift. Reindeer Round-up in Space is a fun presenter-led planetarium show taking the audience on a journey through the Solar System in search of Rudolph and his furry friends to help save Christmas. The show is included in the Santa and the Elves Christmas Experience but can also be booked with General Admission or as a standalone planetarium show.
Santa and the Elves Christmas Experience sessions run at 10:30, 12:00, 13:30, 15:00 and 16:30 on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-16 December and daily from 20-24 December.
