Featuring hands on advice from Swansea Astronomical Society and other South Wales Astronomical Societies there will be a stellar star dome, telescope clinic, 3D space films, cosmic crafts and meteorite display. The event will continue into the evening with the chance to stargaze in our courtyard garden (clouds permitting). This event is suitable for everyone and is free to attend!
