Astrokyds is a group for young astronomers between the ages of 6 to 14 and is run by members of the Loughton Astronomical Society.
The club meets regularly on the second Friday of each month except for April and August. Events usually include an astronomy-themed presentation, experiments, demonstrations and quizzes.
If the skies are clear, the priority is always to get outdoors for stargazing and to observe the night sky using telescopes and binoculars.
If you have children who are interested in joining the group please contact the Society directly.
For full details on how to attend this event, including how to book, please see the event's official website.Visit event website
