During the year we aim to provide courses to assist people in expanding their knowledge and interest in a variety of subjects.

Courses will be on Saturdays and run between 10:00 and 5:00, and will need to be booked in advance as we can only accommodate 50 people on each course. Course descriptions are available at the links for each course.

2024 Dates

Introduction to Astronomy: Saturday 6th April and Saturday 7th September.

Please be aware that those students who are 16 or under may only come on a course with an adult in attendance.

Tea and coffee will be provided but you will need to bring your own food for lunch. There is a fridge and microwave available onsite to store and heat food if you wish.

Free parking is available on-site. The majority of the site is wheelchair accessible, and there is an accessible toilet, however please note that there is rough ground outside and as a result there may be some limitations on viewing through the dome telescopes for those with mobility issues – please contact us if you would like to discuss in more detail.

Following the COVID-19 pandemic the NLO has taken steps to increase the ventilation in the premises and has installed air purifiers for your safety.
