Lectures 2


The Society Lectures at Willingdon Memorial Hall are generally presentations by highly regarded professional astronomers and astrophysicists – from across the UK and further afield. The lectures are at a level most people can understand and rarely contain any mathematics! The Library is also on display and is open to members for the borrowing and returning of books. Coffee and biscuits are available for a small fee – proceeds to the society.

Location: Willingdon Memorial Hall, Church Street, Willingdon, Eastbourne, East Sussex BN20 9HT
