Society activities centre around the Clubhouse building. Built back in 1994 when the Observatory moved to Seething, this building is an ideal place for members to share experiences and to chat in a warm, friendly environment.

The building consists of a kitchen with tea and coffee making facilities with a hatch through into the main room of the building. To the other side of the main room, is a smaller, display area used for Society members to display their astronomical images taken with both conventional film, CCD cameras and webcams.

The main room, referred to as the ‘clubroom’ is where members gather on the Society evenings to chat and share experiences. It provides a warm and relaxed environment where visitors to the Society can mingle with the members and glean that much needed advice.

When the Society open’s its doors to the public, the clubroom transforms into a lecture theatre, seating approximately 40 visitors. Using the latest in digital projectors, the lectures cover subjects from Historical Astronomy all the way through to Black Holes and the End of the Universe.
