Stargazing at Woolsthorpe

Visitors enjoying one of Bristol Astronomical Society's stargazing evenings at Tyntesfield, Somerset

Wrap up warm for an evening of stargazing, Newton's science and hot chocolate at Woolsthorpe Manor on Friday 12 February.

This is where Isaac Newton grew up, gazing at the moon and stars and wondering what kept them in the sky. Come along and look at those same stars above Woolsthorpe Manor, 350 years after his Year of Wonders.

There'll be hands-on activities, local astronomers bringing telescopes and short talks, plus the Lincs Stardome - the whole of the night sky in an inflatable tent. If you have a telescope, bring it along. 

Places are limited, especially for the Lincs Stardome, so book early.

If the weather is right and the skies are clear, maybe you'll be looking at the sky in a new way. And if it's cloudy, then there'll still be plenty for children and grown-ups to do.

The Science Centre, Coffee Shop and our small shop will be open from 5.30-8.30pm.

Adult £8.50; child £4.25; family (2 adults and 2 children) 21.50. To book your place call 01476 862823.
