Chantry Place is bringing a planetarium to Norwich this autumn, run by Starlight Stem.

The Planetarium is putting on an HD, 40-minute, immersive experience, taking visitors on a guided tour of the night sky.

Dr Mark Gallaway, an astrophysicist who has appeared on The Sky at Night and the founder of Starlight Stem, will give the tour.

The guided tour will be done with 360 degrees of sky above to explore.

The Monday to Thursday autumn night sky show will show people stars, galaxies, the moon, Saturn and more.
