Meet the astronomers from Heaton Park Astronomy Group at this open day. There will be information and displays on all things astronomy-related, and, if the sun is shining, special solar telescopes set up outside which you can safely look through. If you are thinking of going along to one of their normal Thursday evening meetings, this is your chance to drop in for a chat to find out what they get up to!
