We are also open every Tuesday from 7.30pm until 9pm as a drop in event where you can learn a bit more about us, see the facilities and if the skies are clear you can bring your own telescope to use and be given advice on how to get the best out of it, or use one of our telescopes.

We will also hold one off drop in sessions for events such as meteor showers and ecilpses, again, please see our Facebook page for any upcoming events.
