Astronomers from DASH Astronomical Society will set up telescopes so that you can have a close up view of the moon and stars, and hopefully some planets and nebulae too! Even if the weather’s cloudy, come along anyway as there’ll be some fun interactive science activities in Heath Barn. Our kiosk will be open from 6:30pm – 9pm for hot drinks and light snacks.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 27/11/2021
