Enjoy hot chocolate, mulled wine, festive treats, and some last-minute gifts in our shop.

Each night will also feature a special add-on event, from poetry readings to astronomical lectures and Pink Floyd's immersive "Dark Side of the Moon" 50th Anniversary Dome Show – this really is the best way to start your festive season with a Big Bang!
