Lime Tree Planetarium / Multifunctional Education Centre
Initial rendering of the proposed Planetarium - 2018
The Planetarium under construction - 12 / 2020
The Lime Tree Planetarium project took place from 2018 to 2023. The plan was to convert one of the farm's existing barns in to a multifunctional space for talks, demonstrations, indoor and outdoor crafts and, of course a 6.4 metre diameter immersive theatre / planetarium for astronomy use.
We are now able to host groups of up to 25 people on a mixture of cinema seating, standard seating and beanbags on the floor, with underfloor heating.
