Life Conference & Banqueting

Bring your event to life


The planetarium at Life Science Centre is out of this world.

Thanks to the 360 degree digital domed screen and the most sophisticated technology available, your films and presentations take on a whole new dimension. Images are super crisp, sound is spectacular – and all from the comfiest reclining seats in the region!

If you’re looking for an extra ‘something’ for your event, Life can also provide stunning space films and visuals and real-time ‘Live Skies’ shows where you can find out what’s happening in space right now.

Our brilliant in-house catering team can rustle up amazing breakfasts and delicious buffets and suppers – served right outside the planetarium in the new Life café.

The planetarium is the ideal venue for

  • Breakfast meetings (7.00am to 10.00am)
  • Product launches and meetings (5.00pm to 8.00pm)

The planetarium is also available for private hire - perfect as a memorable break-out activity - and can even be hired for out of this world wedding and civil partnership ceremonies.

Maximum numbers: 70.
