Public Open Nights Switch to Calender View

Throughout the year the society holds a number of special public events.

At these events you will get the chance to look around the Observatory facilities and, if the sky is clear, be able to look through some of our telescopes.

One of our experienced lecturers will then take you through an illustrated presentation of one of the many fascinating aspects of the Universe and practical astronomy.

All events are held at the observatory. Doors open at 7:30 with talks starting at 8:00, unless the room fills up earlier, in which case the talk will start sooner and depending on numbers could be repeated. Admission is Adults £3.00 Adult members £2.00 All Children £1.50 there is no need to pre book, just turn up on the night. Teas and coffee are available at the end of the talk and there will be a chance to observe through the telescopes, if the skies are clear. Talks vary in length but generally last approximately 40 minutes and are aimed at those with a general interest in astronomy. Children are welcome (recommend from about 8 years upwards) Further information from the Secretary
