Santa’s back in the planetarium at Winchester Science Centre this festive season.

Between December 16 and 23 families are invited to blast into Cosmic Christmas, a live action immersive space adventure where live science, magical effects and an out of this world journey through space on the planetarium dome will bring a new Christmas tale to life.

Families will be sure to make memories this Christmas that will propel them to the stars and back.

Cosmic Christmas is a totally unique festive experience that lasts for approximately 45 minutes. Families are invited to sit in the comfort and luxury of the science centre’s planetarium as Santa tells a tale of cosmic adventures.

Children and grown-ups alike will be wowed as the intergalactic planetary elf, Aster, brings the story to life through live science and a magical space journey. There’ll also be plenty of audience participation and immersive special effects to place the whole audience into the story too. And what better way to finish the experience than by meeting Santa himself and receiving a special Christmas gift?
