Planned Gatherings

We hold regular pub meetings for informal chats about astronomy (and occasionally other things!). They occur each month and are outlined below.

All with an interest in astronomy are welcome from beginners to old hands; this provides a good opportunity if you are new to observing and want to learn what others do.
