Herstmonceux Astronomy Festival 29 Sep - 1 Oct 2006

Post by Robin Scagell »

Following on from last year's success, another event for all the family, at Herstmonceux in Sussex – former home of the Royal Greenwich Observatory.

Camping space is available but facilities (eg ablutions and toilets) are limited. A chance to use the big telescopes at night and enjoy the Science Centre and lectures by day. Take-away food available. Skies are not pitch black but not bad, and the take-away stand turn off their lights at 9 pm. Trade stands.
