Organised by the Essex Wildlife Trust and North Essex Astronomical Society this is a fantastic opportunity to get away from the city lights and go stargazing! Look through large telescopes, listen to one of the interesting astronomical talks given, there’s even bacon rolls on the menu for tea! Sounds like astronomical heaven!
