OPEN EVENING 1st April
On Saturday the 1st April The Centre will re-open again for the evening at 8pm. Come and explore the Centre at night - it is a different atmosphere entirely. All the indoor hands-on interactive exhibits will be available and if the weather is good the main focus of the evening is looking through some of the country's largest telescopes at some fabulous night sky objects including the Moon and magnificent Jupiter. If the weather is not very good and you are not able to look through the telescopes don't worry, if there are enough visitors in The Centre we will have a fascinating planetarium style talk for you which will walk you through the wonders of the night sky showing you objects you wouldn't ordinarily see. Normal admission price applies but if you are visiting during the day and would like to return for the evening, then take advantage of our special offer of just Â£5 per person (only valid with a receipt purchased during the day on the 1st Aril). Alongside the historic telescopes there will be the smaller telescopes of local amateur astronomers.
SCIENCE OF BEER 8th April
Why not treat yourself to a fantastic, fun evening out which not only includes an informative talk about brewing beer but will also include a few fascinating demonstrations and a curry! All this plus the chance to sample some local brew as you will receive a voucher to sample a free beer of your choice (soft drinks and wine are also available). If that was not enough, all being well with the weather then there will be an opportunity to look through the Centre's giant historic telescopes at some remarkable night sky objects including the Moon and Jupiter later on. See Themed Evenings for further details.
