Evening events are returning to Winchester Science Centre in 2023.
In Night Sky Live, families are invited to go on an astro adventure outside to discover the stars and planets of the night sky, live.
The adventure begins in the planetarium, where young and old will learn the skills needed to identify what is above them.
After exploring the science centre’s two floors of exhibits, visitors will follow the stargazing host outside into the South Downs National Park, an International Dark Sky Reserve, for some epic stargazing.
Starlight Cinema is a unique cinema experience in which visitors can sit back and relax as some of Hollywood’s most-loved classic movies play out under the stars of the planetarium.
Families can treat the children to some classic movie history, while at the adults-only screening visitors can relive childhood memories.
In Science Lates, it’s time for the grown-ups to press the buttons at an explosive adults-only show featuring live science and live music.
Visitors can explore the science centre with a drink in hand, play with the exhibits, be wowed by awesome science demonstrations and have a planetarium experience.
Science Explained is a science event like no other. Special guest speakers will take a light-hearted look at some of science’s most intriguing questions, such as do aliens really exist and is time travel possible.
Science will come to life through Inspirer-led demonstrations and a spectacular live planetarium show. There will also be time to explore the two floors of interactive exhibits.
During the daytime visitors can melt away the winter chills with Zero Degrees (January 28 to February 20), spring into science fun with Boom and Bloom (March 18 to April 17), enter a world of weird science, curiosity and investigation with Mysteries and Mayhem (May 13 to June 5), get summer started with a bang at Fiesta (July 8 to September 3), get set for some trick or treats at Science Spoooktacular (October 7 to 30) and experience Christmas past with Science Dino-mite (December 2 to January 7).
