Events 2018
 
Welcome to the events calendar 2018. We are offering a packed programme with some new things on offer this year. Please check to see if you need to book before turning up to any event. Thank you!


January February  March April
May June July  August
September  October November December
OPEN EVENING 3rd MARCH
We will be re-opening at 6.30pm on the 3rd March. With clear skies we will be looking through the telescopes (some of the largest in the country) at some fascinating night sky objects including the magnificent MOON. Alongside the historic telescopes there will be the smaller telescopes of amateur astronomers. Viewing is always weather permitting and if you are travelling some distance please phone The Centre before you make the journey to check our forecast. On cloudy nights we usually offer a planetarium style show if there are enough people in The Centre. Regular admission price applies but if you are visiting during the day and would like to return for the evening, then take advantage of our special offer of just £5 per person with a valid receipt.

TELESCOPE CLINIC 25th February
Do you have a love of astronomy? Are you getting a telescope or have you just got a telescope for Christmas? Have you got a telescope that is sitting in a box because you don't know how to use it? Well now is the time to get it out of the box and learn how to use it! Come and join East Sussex Astronomical Society for a late afternoon, early evening course. They will guide you through the workings and get you on the road to viewing. For more information and how to book go to the Courses page in the Astronomy section. BOOKING ESSENTIAL
