Since 2001 we have given over 10,000 individual show to over 300,000 people of ALL ages from Infants to Pensioners in our inflatable Planetarium!
From large city school to small village primaries, from local W.I's to the BBC and National Trust!
YOU can be sure you are in safe hands when you BOOK US!
We are constantly working with agencies around the world to obtain the finest possible images for our shows.
We write and update roughly 3-4 new shows every year. Some of our 'Festival' shows are perfect for both Arts Festivals and General Events, but are also great for School Fete's etc
Book or Stardome and you will not be dissapointed! BUT contact us early as we get very busy!
As a Teacher or Event Organiser, you are always looking for new and exciting ways to support your work. To add enthusiasm and stimulate interest…so why choose a Mobile Planetarium?
Choosing in inflatable Star Dome for a school is cost effective, no travel costs, no staffing issues AND your class stays IN school all day, so you can follow up a visit to the planetarium with a lesson based upon what they have seen.
Mobile Planetarium school visits really do add the WOW factor to your lessons or events.
A Mobile Planetarium or Star Dome's presence brings excitement. It is a talking point, a focal point around which other activities can be performed, or on its own is a cost-effective way of supporting YOUR activities.
The Auriga Star Dome (Auriga Astronomy), is Unique among UK Mobile Planetariums/Planetaria:
You want someone reliable, who knows what they are doing and can communicate with their audience!
We are one of the longest operating Mobile Planetarium's (with the same owner/operator) Since 2001. Our Presenter Dave has been a registered Equity storyteller for over 19 yrs.
You want something different, not a Surround ‘cinema’ showing the same films are everyone else, who’s only difference is price!
We produce most of our own films, and they are Exclusive to us. And we update them regularly. We have written shows that cover KS2 Science, KS3 Science, GCSE Science and A Level Science as well as Mayan and Egyptian History (including video taken by Dave in Egypt) and update them if there are any changes to the curriculum. We are a Mobile Planetarium NOT a 360 Cinema showing bought in films!
You want a business that you can work WITH…not one that takes over your working day and issues strict conditions!
We are flexible, we work with and around you to make the day run smoothly, we try and make our Mobile Planetarium fit into YOUR plans.
Therefore, you should choose US!
Even before the day of the show, we are available to discuss timetables, logistics, special requirements etc.
On the day we arrive around 8am (for a 9am start) Unload and set up the Planetarium, (a coffee is nice, but not critical) chat to the person organising the day, to see is there are any last minute changes and confirm the timings and show content and Show our DBS etc.
If the Mobile Planetarium has to come down for school dinners, we ensure its location makes it easy to pack away.
Before each show Dave will introduce himself, give a very brief safety talk, explain the rules of the Star Dome and what the audience will be seeing.
Then ‘In we go’ we walk straight in. If there are any wheelchairs in the group, we put them in first. The audience sits on the floor (as our Mobile Planetarium has not floor no need to take shows off) there are chairs put in for the staff if available.
Simply put, we are easy to work with, we try not to disrupt your working day and give your class or group the best possible mobile planetarium experience…at a very sensible price!
So Contact US today! and lets get started!
As well as our Mobile Planetarium, we can provide our Portable Cinema Screen for indoor or outdoor(in the dark) cinema style experiences. Perfect for fundraisers or parents evenings etc.
Our Dave is a regular STEM ambassador (Science Technology Engineering Maths) in the Midlands and the North. He firmly believes in doing voluntary work, furthering the public engagement of Science and helping children of school age in various STEM activities.
IF you have a STEM related event and need an ambassador like Dave, click the link and request a volunteer. Your local STEM coordinator can help and advise which ambassador would be most appropriate. STEM help with both Primary, Secondary and Home Schooling events. Their ambassadors are free!
