Public Open Day

During the Spring and Summer, it is too light to hold open evenings. Instead, we hold a number of solar viewing events both at our observatory and at events and festivals organised by other groups away from the observatory.

Join us to view the Sun through our special Solar telescopes (weather permitting). Rolling lectures inside the lecture room followed by a tour of the telescope inside the observatory dome.

We sell Astro-themed merchandise, such as society logo caps, woolly hats, beanie hats, hoodies & T-shirts. As well as small items like pens, pencils, alien slime ect.

Hot & cold refreshments with a selection of cakes will be available to purchase on-site.

Please note Please arrive on time for your entrance time. Also, while parking your vehicle please do so responsibly - ensuring tidy parallel parking with minimum space between neighboring cars.
