Astronomy stage shows

 

Covid-19

Coronavirus

Update

 

Due to the Impact of Covid-19 on Schools/Groups and other activities, it is unlikely that the Planetarium will be a viable option for more than 10 people until the Autumn.

 

WE Need to Operate,YOU need us to provide Stimulating, Exciting Science presentations (you have told us so), therefore we have spend the past few weeks creating our DYNAMIC, SPECTACULAR, and AWE inspiring....STAGE SHOWS!

 

Designed to allow for social distancing!

 

Using sound, light and a 4m wide rear screen projection system, that will fit into ANY hall, we can offer this to you as an addition to our existing presentations.

 

All our current shows can be resented this way, as we write them ourselves in 16:9 1080pHD format, (Immersive projections cannot be presented outside a dome)

The only thing that cannot be recreated is the 5 min stars section (sadly you DO need a dome for this!)

 

These shows are still presenter led, Dave is is costume! and used a state of the Art Wireless PA system, Lasers and Dry Ice (used to industry safety standards, in consultation with you) and other amazing effects, to make these shows a MAGICAL hour of Astronomy Education.

 

Our biggest fear is not that you will not find them perfect, but that you will prefer them to the Dome!!

We are the ONLY UK  Astronomy Stage SHOW, currently in operation

Auriga Astronomy is now a 'landing page' for ALL our various business activities.

We do provide regular links to our MAIN Mobile Planetarium , Astronomy Stage Shows and Invite-a-Knight websites.

Our shows are written by us, and therefore are unique and exclusive to us. we have a catalogue of around 20 different shows, from the Earth,Sun & Moon, to A level Astrophysics. We also have great shows on the Mayans, Egyptians, and a fantastic ecology show called Our Beautiful Earth. For full details go to our SHOWS page.

We believe our dome is the most SEND friendly of ANY Uk mobile Planetarium. It's flat floor easy access is perfect to wheelchairs and those with mobility issues, we also offer the ability for a teacher to sign to deaf students (EVEN in TOTAL Darkness!)

Our Spectacular Stage shows are designed to complement our existing presentations.

They allow for Social Distancing inside a Hall!

They can be performed OUTSIDE for fetes and events (the projector and screen are in a tent, the audience are in the open air)

ALL our existing shows are available to be presented on a stage! (if there is no stage an area of flooring will be marked out for safety)

ALL for our standard prices

Auriga Astronomy Invite a Knight

Invite a Knight provides a live presentation of a fully armoured Knight from either the Norsemen\'Viking', Saxon, Norman or Crusader (late Norman) period.

The Knight will explain in an interactive and lively way what life was like in the 'period' why people behaved the way they did, what weapons were used and how armour protected warriors of the time. He will further explain the role of ladies/girls in that time, and dispel many of the myths that surround the early medieval period.

there are opportunities for the audience to handle real weaponry and armour of the time, and understand how heavy it was. there will interactivity with 'fake' safe weapons for the audience to understand how battles were fought.

a VITAL part of these shows is a question and answer session at the end (as well as questions during the show).

Once again we are extremely flexible in our timings, and our shows can be delivered to a few or a few hundred.

We can also attend outdoor fete's and parties to give our talks and be available for photo opportunities.

We Carry £10m PLI for ALL our activities, are Fully DBS Enhanced checked, and our electrical equipment is routinely PAT tested.

Dave our owner/presenter has worked as part of the International Astronomical Union's working group on Improving Astronomy communication with the Public, a regular STEM ambassador and Judge. He has delivered stage shows to over 500 people in large ahll for open evenings and astronomical events.

Dave is also a is a registered 'Equity' Storyteller (for over 15 years), and regular early medieval re-enactor (his father was a Saxon/Norman historian).
