Featuring helpful tips on how to star-gaze at home, bite-sized flash talks covering the latest in astronomy and astrophysics research and the chance to take in the delights of the night sky with a range of telescopes.

Booking: This is a drop-in festival style event. No booking is required but we ask groups of 10+ to contact us in advance. Talks, workshops and the planetarium will be taking place every hour. Observing will take place after dark only.

*As in previous years, the number of guests we can accommodate in the building at any given time is limited, so you may have to queue outside on our covered walkway. You won’t be bored as there will be plenty of scientists outside too, entertaining you while you wait.*

Disabled visitors: There is limited access for disabled visitors. Please contact us.

Refreshments: Light refreshments will be available to buy from the canteen.

Parking: There is no parking available on site. There may be some pay and display parking on Keble Road and Norham Gardens, but we recommend you use Oxford Park and Ride if you are traveling from outside Oxford.
