Winter Skies and Christmas crafting

December 1, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Enjoy a unique night out this Christmas at Life Science Centre. This adults-only event is the perfect alternative experience for anyone who loves stargazing (and staying warm!), trying a bit of crafting or just sipping a Christmas cocktail under a glowing recreation of planet Earth.  

Step into Life’s stunning planetarium for a presenter-led show that reveals what Newcastle’s winter night skies really look like without pollution and weather spoiling the view. Using the most advanced technology available, explore festive dark skies with the striking constellation Orion taking centre stage.  Leave the world behind without leaving your very comfy seat. 

You can also get crafty in the Making Studios and create your own festive greetings card to take home. Life’s friendly makers will be on hand to keep everyone on track. 

Tickets include a welcome festive cocktail (or mocktail) and mini Christmas bites under the stunning artwork Gaia (a huge, illuminated planet Earth).  All materials are provided for the making activity. No crafting experience necessary. 

A session on the outdoor ice rink can be added to the experience. Separate prices apply.
