FREE Planetarium Visits

We've been asked to make all of our parents aware of the following event:


CADW are holding a pop up planetarium in Caerphilly Castle’s great hall from 28th September to 4th October for pupils from St James Primary,  Ysgol Gymraeg Caerfilli and possibly the Twyn, St Martins and Cwm Ifor.


On Saturday 3rd and  Sunday 4th of October between 10.45am – 2.30pm, the sessions will be open for families to attend – where pupils will be able to bring their parents/families back to experience the planetarium and show them around the castle.  These sessions will be free, however the families need to give their names to Lisa Davies at CCBC (01443 863194)  in advance, so that she can arrange for their name to be held at the Castle gates, so that they get the free admittance – otherwise there will be a charge. 


If you've not had the opportunity to visit a Planetarium before, they are well worth a visit and this is a fantastic opportunity.  If you've got the time, please go along but don't forget to register first.
