Daniel Dyer the event organiser said, “We are really excited to be coming to Bletchley Park and hope to encourage people of all ages to take an interest in Astronomy, some of our group have been doing this for years, but we also have a number of first timers. We welcome everyone from enthusiasts to people who just want to know what the constellation was that was once mentioned by their dad. For the best stargazing we are hoping for a clear night, the down side to this is it will mean a cold night, so make sure you wrap up warm”.
The event is free to attend and tea and coffee will be available for a small donation. Parking is available on from 6.30pm. No booking required.
