A special and unique opportunity for discovering the universe by learning how to use a telescope and how to navigate the night skies with the direction and aid of a professional astronomer.
Nicholas Joannou from the Royal Astronomical Society will walk you through the whole processes of setting up and using a telescope, step by step, opening up the cosmos for you to explore.
Following the workshop if weather permits we will be holding a sky viewing session where we hope to see the Moon and Mars.
