A guide to the cost of booking Explorer Dome for your event

The Cost of a Visit from Explorer Dome

Our prices depend on where you are, what sort of shows you would like and how many shows you need. Shows in the Dome, Chemistry shows and Rocket shows/workshops are all priced separately. See below for details but if in doubt, or if you would like a combination of shows then please just get in touch.

The costs below are guide prices for those local to Birmingham, South Wales or the South West of England. If you are further afield, please ask and we can advise you on the cost of a visit. We frequently travel nationally and internationally.

  • £360 + VAT = A morning of up to 3 shows
  • Additional shows cost £90 + VAT per show (for example, 4 shows = £450 + VAT)

    Booking our Chemistry Shows

    The Bubble Show, States of Matter and Science Tricks don’t use the dome and are suitable for up to 70 (KS1/2) or 60 (KS3/4) students per show. Cost depends on the number of shows you would like to have:

  • £360 + VAT = A morning of 1 or 2 shows

  • Great news! Schools in Bristol, Bath and some parts of Somerset, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire have support from the Bristol & District branch of the Royal Society of Chemistry. The RSC may fund up to 40% of the cost of your chemistry show visit. However, the allocation of these funds is annual and distributed on a first come first served basis so please get in touch for more information.
