Join the Lord Crewe team in The Gatehouse at Lord Crewe for an evening of stargazing with Andy Gray. Andy is an expert in his field and will give a beginners’ guide to the starry sky.
If the weather is clear, expect a trip to the bottom of the garden to have a look through the telescopes. Wrap up in blankets and enjoy a hot drink to keep you warm.
A night sky is expected with Jupiter, Saturn and the Andromeda Galaxy visible – weather permitting.
