Wrap up warm and join amateur astronomer, Robert Ince, for an evening of stargazing.
Robert will be your guide on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, whilst also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself.
Weather permitting, he will show some of the sky’s wonders through powerful telescopes and binoculars and will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!
And if the weather doesn’t co-operate there will be colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
Suitable for adults and accompanied children 10 years and over. (Indoor event is wheelchair accessible.)
£5 per person
