Other SEPnet Universities with Mobile Planetarium

Unfortunately the Soton Astrodome team cannot come to schools which are not within a 1 hour travel limit of the University of Southampton (I use google maps to work this out).

However, the South East Physics Network (SEPnet) has 3 other mobile planetariums which offer shows FREE of charge to schools in the South East. These domes will travel within a 1 hour limit of their respective university bases.

For further information contact the SEPnet Outreach Officers at these Universities:

The University of Kent

Dr Vicky Fitzgerald


The University of Sussex

Dr Darren Baskill


The University of Portsmouth

Dr Jen Gupta


Also note that there are several other mobile planetarium buisnesses that serve the whole of the UK and offer school visits, please go onto the website, linked below, and type in your school postcode to find the planetaria that serve your area:
