Mike Culley - Science Horizons

I have loved science, particularly astronomy, since my early school days and have completed a degree in physics with astronomy. I have been fortunate to travel around the world to observe the beauty of the night skies, and also to see two total solar eclipses (Australia 2002 and Libya 2006).

As one of the most experienced live planetarium presenters in the UK, I have had the great pleasure of developing and delivering science and astronomy shows, talks and workshops for over 25 years. In that time, I have given thousands of planetarium shows, sharing my knowledge and love of science and the night sky with children and adults - something that is uniquely rewarding.

My aim is to make the truly amazing world of science accessible to everyone of any age, and have run workshops for all ages on a range of topics from my first science love, space, through sound, holography and much more...


I am also proud to be the chair of the Castle Point Astronomy Club, which runs well-attended public open nights where visitors can (weather permitting!) see objects in the night sky through large telescopes. More details about our Open Nights here.

I am also a qualified Chartered Psychologist specialising in applied psychology. I work with individuals undertaking coaching and personal development, run training workshops for organisations, and special public workshops for adults to explore exciting psychology topics.
