SSSSHHH a secret visit from Santa and a chance to have a selfie with him before he ventures back off to the North Pole to prepare for that big day.

To get you really in the mood we are delighted to announce a special guest appearance from the Eastbourne Silver Band playing a compilation of festive music.

Following Santa and the band you will have the opportunity to visit the domes to meet our astronomers who will guide you on a view of the night sky through our historic telescope.
