What we offer

Although we are primarily a research department, we have a variety of public education and outreach activities run by a dedicated outreach team and enthusiastic volunteers from among our students, staff and faculty.  Please note that we will do our best to accommodate you and your organisation, but availability is limited. Read below to see which of our activites works for you.

We host weekly public open evenings every Wednesday during the Winter season (October - March).

We are gearing up to the 2015/16 season which will kick off on 7 October 2015.

Find out what's involved; and a list of what talks were on during the last season. 

Members of our outreach team can either arrange for students to visit the Insititute or for us to come visit a school. We offer presentations at all key stages covering all topics in astronomy.

We can accommodate bookings for community groups to visit the Institute. Depending on the weather, we can host observing through the site telescopes.  For cub/brownie/scout/guide packs, we  can host an early evening visit for your cub/brownie/scout/guide pack.

  • For the Media

We can provide information about recent astronomical discoveries and upcoming observable events in the night sky for members of the media. Please contact a member of our outreach team for more information. 

Ever had an astronomy question you've always wanted to know the answer to? Well now you can find out here by Asking an Astronomer!
