Group/School Visits & Private Bookings

A private evening can be arranged whereby Society members bring along telescopes to a group's venue, or present a slide show or lecture during the day time. 

While our clients are generally schools and universities, we welcome bookings from other groups, such as car clubs, tourist groups and anyone else with an interest in Astronomy.

The Society can also take bookings from groups for private viewing nights at Stockport Observatory.  Click here for more information about bookings at Stockport Observatory.
