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.

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.
