We'll keep you warmed by breaking for soup + roll + hot drink and then entertain you with a presentation on an astronomical topic. If the weather does not permit us to be outside you'll instead enjoy a virtual tour of the night time skies and be shown how to find astronomical objects of interest. Ticket price includes food, drink, car parking and transaction fees.
