Monthly Meetings

The meetings are held at in the Pavilion adjacent to the Observatory in Watery Lane – there is a map and full address details here.

In addition to our normal club night each Thursday, VAS has monthly meetings, with guest speakers, throughout the year.

These meetings are open to all. No charge is made but a donation to our Society funds would really help.

Please be aware that details may change. You can check the current details using the Contact Form.

Monthly meetings are held at 19.30hrs on the fourth Friday of every month except for the August AGM which starts at 19.00hrs, and December when there is no meeting

Meetings are usually divided into two parts:

  • First a presentation by our guest speaker

a short break for refreshment and then

  • A review of news and astronomical highlights for the next month.
