Croydon Astronomical Society

Croydon Astronomical Society present a series of talks on subjects related to astronomy on Fridays at the Junior School Hall of The Royal Russell School in Croydon.  We normally have one main talk of about 1 hour and a shorter talk of 30 minutes or less.

The talks start at 7:45 pm and are open to anyone.  There is no need to book; just turn up.

For details of car parking, a map and access by public transport click here.

There is no charge for the talks but there is a suggested donation of £3 per person to help cover the costs of venue hire and the speaker (larger donations are of course very welcome).  Refreshments are available for a nominal charge.

The talks programme is shown below.   Due to circumstances beyond our control there may be last minute changes.
