*TICKETS SOLD OUT AT THE LIBRARY - SOME REMAIN ONLINE. THERE MAY BE SOME RETURNS ON THE DAY **
For one day only we're giving you the chance to step inside Cosmos' huge mobile planetarium and boldy go on two special missions to the stars! We'll also have space-themed activities throughout the morning - including space suits to try on - and two half-hour space shows for which you will require a ticket.
It's free to come along on the day and join in with the other activities, but every person attending a planetarium space show must hold a ticket. Maximum capacity in the planetarium is 25 people per show.
Tickets are £2 per person, per show. You can attend as many of the space shows as you like, but you must have a ticket for each individual show time.
Tickets are available in person at Falkirk Library and online at TicketSource. Please note that Falkirk Library cannot accept email or phone bookings.

**Autism-friendly screening of We Are Aliens**
All screenings are open to everyone, but we're starting the day with an exclusive autism-friendly showing of 'We Are Aliens'. We'll open our doors early at 9am to give families sole use of the library and freedom to explore. The show starts promptly at 9.30am.
Entry for the autism-friendly screening is at 9am and the show begins at 9.30am. Every person attending a planetarium show must hold a ticket (including parents). Tickets are £2 per person. Family members who are coming along, but don’t wish to attend the planetarium show, don’t require a ticket.
