The Astronomy Roadshow Mobile Planetarium

Established January 1994 / Owner of the Largest Mobile Dome in the UK

Our Books published as e-books and paperbacks... 2nd Edition of Satellite Spotting & Operations Handbook for beginners and 'The Great Moon Landing Hoax... Or Was It? Try our new page on Space related Songs in the Pupils Pages section.

All shows are 180 x 360 degree projections. A brand new advanced Star Projector used from 12 May 2016. It has 3x the number of stars, finer, brighter and some are coloured. It includes a variable speed electric drive that work in both directions. It took 6 months to design and construct.

If you see Tim Peake throw a TARDIS across the space station; it was my idea forwarded via the British Association of Planetaria. His first spacewalk (EVA) was almost perfect, very brave man, saved the mission. Don't forget Helen Sharman was the first British Astronaut, Tim is the first UK Government sponsored Astronaut.

With five different sized domes available, the mission of The Astronomy Roadshow is to increase general interest in science. We visit 230-260 venues / 38,000 people a year in a dome- 800,000 since 1994; plus another 5,000 people a year via hall lectures. The world faces huge problems today; Famine, Energy & Material Shortages, Climate Change, Destruction of the Natural World, New Diseases etc; all can be solved by new science and policy. By increasing the number of people involved, we increase our chances of survival or fall upon very hard times and remain stuck here on Planet Earth for centuries. The 21st century is a unique era where we get this choice of futures.

Many planetarium shows seem geared mainly toward entertainment, we have kept the teaching aspect as priority instead. We encourage the audience to reason, evaluate, find logic / realism and question but in an entertaining way.

Regarding school bookings, the presenter is not responsible for the pupils' behaviour. We do not give rides or allow chaotic screaming and shouting sessions; his hearing has been damaged as a result. Children wandering around in the dark is a safety risk too; the lights have to go on and ruin the session for everybody... we provide entertaining science lectures only in quiet venues - regardless of age range. Allowances are made for special needs schools.. thank you.
