This public stargazing event has been organised in conjunction with BBC Stargazing Live 2017 by the social astronomy group Astronomy For Fun. Activities include a live link up to Australia (where Stargazing Live is being broadcast from), a talk by the excellent Ross Hockham from UK Astronomy, virtual reality headsets to explore the Universe (wow!) and of course telescopes to look through should the weather allow. Refreshments also available including cake — if all that hasn’t encouraged you to go along we’re not sure what will! For more information message the Astronomy For Fun group on their Facebook page (link below).
Please note that this event has already taken place on 01/04/2017
