What's on - Home Education and Non-School Group Related Learning

The National Space Centre offers a number of additional activities and events throughout the year. You are currently on the Education section of our website, and so this page is solely focused on showing you additional content related to school children and their families, and may not display every event scheduled. For a full listing of 'What's On', please refer to the page on our main website.

Events listed on this page are NOT available to book for school groups, with the exception of Sleepover events. Uniformed groups may book for Scouting and Guiding events, and for Sleepovers. Please refer to the individual event page to find out more information.

For all events, it is advised to book events as soon as possible, as spaces are limited and we often sell out.

PLEASE NOTE: Educational group bookings, such as schools and uniformed groups, are exempt from claiming the annual pass, as per our terms and conditions. During school holidays and premium events, we do not accept school bookings. Please be aware we aim to cover the half-terms across all counties, and so we may be operating at peak hours while your particular school is still within term time.
