Description

Members of Croydon Astronomical Society open the doors of their fantastic observatory near Kenley to the public every Saturday evening between Autumn (around mid-August) through to early Summer (around mid-May). Events are subject to good weather conditions and start times vary throughout the year based on when the skies darken. Please do check their website before visiting to ensure the event is going ahead -- if so there's no need to book in advance and the events are free to attend (donations welcome).

- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.
