Foredown Tower Astronomers are a friendly, social group of amateur astronomers that meet once a month to listen to a guest speaker and then enjoy conversation over light refreshments. If the skies are clear members are asked to bring their telescopes for some observing which guests can also join.

Meetings are held at the Emmaus Community Café on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Free parking is available on site.

Guests are welcome to all evenings at a cost of £5 (includes refreshments) and should they then wish to join membership costs £20 per 6 months.

Next Meeting: Discoveries at the Large Hadron Collider

Date: 19th April at 7:30pm

Speaker: Dr Iocopo Vivarelli

Dr. Vivarelli is from Sussex University and works both here in Sussex and at the Large Hadron Collider in CERN.


If clear skies are forecast please bring your telescope and there will be some observing after the talk.
