YOUR OWN PURPOSE-BUILT WINDOW ON THE UNIVERSE

Create your own event

You can book the Observatory for your own events.  As a Corporate Supporting member, if you have an approved host (trained to use the Observatory equipment), you can hire the Observatory and run events yourself.  Otherwise you will need to book the services of one of the Observatory's Star Guides to organise and run your event.  Events can be tailored to meet your particular needs, but the standard tariffs below will give you a good indication of typical event costs.
