Event Details


This is the local ILP Birmingham branch 'showcase event' of the year and we've made it one for everyone who is curious and interested in lighting, the universe, and everything.


The reason for choosing the Planetarium is to show a link between light and the environment and our solar system; how light is created, distributed and measured.


Michala Medcalf, Chair, has shared one of her all-time favourite pictures to help explain the concept behind this event. It’s by Joseph Wright, a Derby lad, and is called the Orrery; it is so captivating. It shows the experienced Joseph overseeing his work with his apprentices whilst engaging with children, the future of science and understanding. The kids’ faces say it all: one picture, so much information, can say so much. 


Join us in our day of curiousity; a show of the universe lit up in all its glory, quality CPD papers and reflections on the environment.
