These evenings are normally reserved for members however anyone interested would be very welcome to go along to try it out before considering joining the Society. The open evenings are weather dependent and will only go ahead if the weather permits observing. Attendance is by prior arrangement only so please contact the Society before visiting.

- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.
