The Occasion in association with Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium present
A live action planetarium show: YOU ARE HERE!
WOW Tours are expecting to attend a lecture from The Professor only to find themselves unexpectedly confronted with the disappearance of the stars - not to mention the disappearance of The Professor!
Equipped only with umbrellas and a mysterious A-Z guidebook of the Galaxy, WOW Tours embark on a magical journey. With help from the audience they uncover where The Professor has gone and in doing so, discover “the most incredible, remarkable, mind-blowing thing in the universe!”
With Jupiter as the ultimate ‘behind you’ moment, a zoom through Saturn’s rings and a voyage down to the surface of Mars, this is a show unlike any other.
An exciting new family show that perfectly combines live theatre with an immersive 360˚ full dome planetarium experience. Join the hosts of Wow Tours on an out-of-this-world adventure as they attempt to put everything in its place – in our Solar System, the Universe and beyond!
Don’t be THERE. Be HERE!
Plenty of imaginative audience interaction and cheeky humour… it balances the wonder of the planetarium with a charming narrative. A wonderful encouragement for children to check out the power of scientific investigation.
A wonderful and educational trip through the universe.
What a magical and unique experience!
Introduces children to the wonders and scale of our solar system in an effective way.
This fusion of arts and science creates an extremely accessible show for children and their families to explore the huge and complex concepts of time and space.
