We pride ourselves on having what we believe to be the best Astronomy lecturers in the UK.
Classes start at 7:45 every Thursday in 'The Hall'

NOTE:
In the early part of the new Educational year it is quite common for our Lecturers not to be sure what dates they will be available or what subjects they will lecture on. What you can be sure of is the highest calibre Astronomy lectures.
