With a full script and unique music, the story will teach children all about the stars and the cosmos. This live event is a first of its kind, designed and developed by D-Signs and Displays Limited of Coalisland alongside the team at Armagh Planetarium.

With an exclusively designed set—along with props, puppeteers and local actors—this truly is a heart-warming adventure into the cosmos in search of these wonderful characters.

This event is one in a series of educational outreach programmes in which Armagh Planetarium will engage with local primary schools to bring the benefits of a planetarium-like experience to them!
