🎄🎄 Annual Christmas Lecture Announcement🎄🎄

We are pleased to announce that our 2023 Christmas lecture will be taking place on Friday 15th December, at Monton Methodist Church.

We will be having a small social gathering before hand with the doors opening at 7:00pm to say hello and reminisce of the year gone by. Feel free to bring sausage rolls and/or mince pies! Tea and Coffee will be provided.

The talk itself has been pre-recorded by our honorary president and dear friend Dr Allan Chapman FRAS. The talk will be shown starting at 7:30pm and is entitled:

“From beer brewing to the stars: John Flamsteed and the founding of the Greenwich Royal Observatory”

The event is free for anyone who may wish to attend (although any voluntary donations to the society would be greatly appreciated!)
