The North West Astronomy Festival is a not-for-profit show aimed at beginners, amateurs and professional astronomers.

Updated 20/03/20 – Statement from the event organisers regarding Coronavirus

In view of the escalating Covid-19 situation, the North West Astronomy Festival management committee have reluctantly concluded that it is in everyone’s best interest that we re-schedule the Festival to 2021. We have made huge progress in planning the event and as a team we are well positioned to work towards an even better Festival in 2021.

We would like to thank everyone for their support so far, especially the astronomy societies who have been so keen, and the wonderful speakers and traders who had agreed to come along. We will be back in touch as soon as things settle down. In the meantime, watch for updates on our website and via social media.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 24/10/2020
