The Christmas Story

The traditional Christmas Story in the Planetarium offers a wonderful experience for children and adults. Visitors sit in the centre of a giant, animated picture book and become an integral part of the tale. They accompany Mary and Joseph from the appearance of the angel in Nazareth to the search for a room in overcrowded Bethlehem. They visit the shepherds in the fields and accompany them to discover the child in the manger.

This show is not currently included in our daily programme. Special viewings or other public shows can be arranged for groups of 50 or more or for schools by prior arrangement. Please contact our Conferences and Events team.
