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 £3 (includes refreshments) and should they then wish to join membership costs £15 per 6 months.

Next Meeting: The Space Telescope

Date: 16th March at 7:30pm

Speaker: Peter Fishenden (Society Member)

Details coming soon.


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