MEETINGS Doors open 7.30 pm, meetings start at 8 pm and take the form of an ESAS update, the main speaker, break for coffee and then night sky update and / or any further talks.
SOCIAL Each August, in place of our meeting, the Society holds its annual BBQ.
 
OBSERVINGESAS has it own observatory with a 16" telescope which is available for members use. We also have a range of telescopes which members can use..
MEETING ENTRANCE In the current venue we ask for an entry donation (£2 members/£4 non-members) to help cover costs.
