Beamish, Washington, DH9 0RG
Join the members of Sunderland Astronomical Society for this special event being held at the wonderful location of Beamish Museum. Unfortunately the TV programme BBC Stargazing Live is not broadcast this year, however, the active astronomers of the “SAS” need no encouragement to get outside with their telescopes! The event is set to be a big celebration of astronomy in the North East with tickets available directly from the museum itself. It’s a great excuse to get out with family and friends and explore the skies above County Durham!
Please note that this event has already taken place on 26/01/2018
