An intergalactic audio adventure for an adult and child (7+) to experience together.

Ever wondered what it would be like to travel through space? When you buy a ticket for Another Planet we’ll mail you a package containing everything you’ll need to create your own interplanetary adventure. We need the bravest galactic explorers for a mission to investigate Another Planet and find out if humans could survive there!

All you’ll need to do is to download an audio track, and visit a nearby green public space to experience the adventure. You’ll collect important scientific samples, dodge alien invasions and delve deep underground to discover more about the mysterious planet you land on. Audio guide Astrid the Galaxy Hopper will take you on your mission as you boldly go where no child has gone before.


You will receive a ‘Galac Pack’ in the post and a link to download an audio file. You will need a smartphone or other device to play the audio file. We recommend using two pairs of headphones and a splitter to listen together on one device.

Each pack includes:

  • Printed instructions for how to experience the adventure
  • A Galac bag (tote bag)
  • Notebook and pen
  • Gold visor (sleep mask)
  • Handy Galactic scanners
  • Sample bottle
  • Headphone splitter if requested

The audio experience lasts 40 minutes and takes you on a journey through space, landing on another planet. You will be guided to explore this new planet, collecting samples, listening to its sounds, and saving it from Aliens who are about to destroy it.

Your ‘Galac Pack’ will include printed instructions for how to experience the adventure along with items to help with your quest. You can visit a public green space of your choice to conduct your exploration, but please follow the latest government guidance so you stay safe while on your adventure.

Each package has been put together by hand and a lot of work has gone into writing, devising and recording the audio guide that you will enjoy. We have a limited supply of these packages and we really want to get them to families who will enjoy them during lockdown.

For every package we sell, we will supply another free of charge to a family in the Bury community who we can work with thanks to our outreach team. If you’re able to pay £20 for your pack you can help us to part fund this work.

Special offer

We’ll give you £3 off Another Planet (normal cost £12) if you buy it in combination with How the Koala Learnt to Hug!
