Can these domes be used outdoors?
All our domes are made for indoor use only, however they can be used outside if sheltered inside a dry, secure marquee.

How many people can the domes accommodate?
5m dome : up to 30 small children or 15 adults or 20 mixed or 6 wheelchair users
6m dome : up to 60 small children or 30 adults or 40 mixed or 8 wheelchair users

NOTE: these are the capacities for seated audiences. 

How much space do the domes require?
5m dome : 6.0 x 6.0m floor space with 3.1m ceiling clearance
6m dome : 6.6 x 6.6m floor space with 3.7m ceiling clearance

How long does it take to set up and take down?
Between 40-50min to set up and 25-35min to take down.

Do you offer accessible shows?

  • all our domes are fully wheelchair accessible. 
  • many of our shows are also available in different languages, please check the catalogue or contact us for details. 

Can I create my own content to screen in your dome?
Yes, we are strong advocates of the new ‘fulldome’ (360˚) digital medium and will happily work with you to create your own content.

When do I need to pay?
5m dome - payment needs to be received before the date of the visit.

Can I cancel a booking?
