Astronomy Festival 2018

Well we had another fantastic festival and this year the weather was certainly kinder than last year. We even managed some viewing which is a great bonus!

Thank you to everyone who attended, your support is much appreciated. We would also like to thank all our speakers, Tom McGuinness for the Robots, the trade stands for their generosity with raffle prizes, Astronomy Societies, University of Sussex and UK Garrison who provided us with the highly entertaining Storm Troopers. We would also like to thank Steve Collingwood for the very entertaining AstroBingo and for all his help with raffle prizes etc. including speaking to Adam Hinds of David Hinds Ltd who we must thank for very generously donating the telescope for the Grand Prize draw which managed to raise a lot of money to help with the upkeep of our fabulous telescopes and domes.

Dates for your diary! The festival will be held on the 31st, 1st & 2nd of September in 2018 and we hope to see you there.
