Heaton Park Bowls Pavilion - Prestwich
Heaton Park, Prestwich, M25 2GT
If you got a new telescope for Christmas or you are struggling with the one you’ve got, we can help you set it up! We’ll be having talks on what astronomy is all about, what there is to see and finding your way around the night sky. And, if it’s a clear night, you’ll be able to look through the telescopes set up outside and we’ll point out the constellations to you. Free, with voluntary donations for hot drinks and biscuits. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
