Lectures 3


The Society Lectures at Willingdon Memorial Hall are generally presentations by highly regarded professional astronomers and astrophysicists – from across the UK and further afield. The lectures are at a level most people can understand and rarely contain any mathematics! The Library is also on display and is open to members for the borrowing and returning of books. Coffee and biscuits are available for a small fee – proceeds to the society.

Location: Willingdon Memorial Hall, Church Street, Willingdon, Eastbourne, East Sussex BN20 9HT

    I’d like to attend some of your lectures and wanted to know what you charge for tickets, and if they are available in advance?

    Also, as a space science communicator, I give talks and lectures myself. I can see that your lecture diary is full for the 2015/6, but wondered if you were looking for speakers to give informal talks at your observing events.

    Regards,

    Melanie

      Hi Melanie,

      Sorry only just seen your post. Our meetings are not ticketed and are free for non-members as a try before you buy/join! Although it would be nice to provide a small donation towards costs. Annual membership is only £15 for adults!

      I will bring your offer of speaking to the committee.

      Thanks

      Terry Webb

    Message from member John Shacklock
    Like most members currently under house arrest I cannot attend any meetings at the Memorial Hall for the foreseeable future. I was expecting to see a message on this website that forthcoming lectures are cancelled or postponed. I would be be disappointed but not surprised. Best wishes to the Committee. john
