The day will be held at the village hall in Burnham on Saturday 19th February from 10am to 3pm, with a chance to practice in the evening if clear.

 Hi there,

We will be holding the Introduction to Astronomy course on Saturday 4th September at the Burnham Village Hall from 10am. eMail for details and booking form eastessexastronomyclub@gmail.com.

On Saturday 2nd and 9th October and Saturday 13th November  we will be supporting the Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome with an observing event. We will have various telescopes for viewing the night sky. These are not our events and need to be booked via the Stow website (the events are, as of writing, not on their site so keep visiting).
