In the last few years we have noticed that quite a few "other dome operators" have started to call themselves by our name!
whilst we are flattered they should try to copy us!
Ours IS THE "Original" StarDome with over 28 years of operations in the UK and abroad
Whilst they may use our name spell and write it the same to try and drum up business, they are not us nor ever will be.
Another trusted planetarium operator was overheard to say:
"Beware of "Fly by Night" operators who promise the world and deliver nothing"
Our reputation, the respect for us and our credentials are there for all to see.
Originally established in 1994 we operate one of of the longest established mobile/travelling planetariums and astronomy presentation businesses in the whole UK. We are based in Cambridge, but we travel to anywhere in the whole UK
and farther by request
Beware those who copy! they will NEVER be us!
