Upcoming Events

We have lots of exciting astronomy planned for next academic year including our brand new, monthly, Open Observatory events. The usual format of these will be a talk on an astronomical topic followed by observing if the weather is clear.

Open Observatory events are open to the public and to members of the Space Studio. To book please email: office@spacestudiobanbury.org with the date of the event and the number of places you would like. Children under the age of 16 who are not SSB students must be accompanied by an adult, SSB students must have a signed permission slip (see Miss Flood).
