Astronomy course calendar

At Astrofarm we deliver a number of astronomy and astronomy related courses. Our astronomy course calendar shows the dates for the pre-arranged courses for 2017. These short courses are for beginners and do not require prior knowledge or specialist equipment. For content details of our courses please see our Astronomy Courses page. 

With small groups of 6 - 10, we can guarantee personal attention and plenty of time to help and answer questions. All our astronomy courses are informal, relaxed, friendly and fun. Our tutor Andrew has many years experience of teaching adults and fully understand the anxieties we mature students have!

We have a programme of courses throughout the year and any of the astronomy courses can be arranged on a date to suit for a group of 6 - 10 people. It is also possible to deliver a beginner astronomy course for a group at your own venue, by prior arrangement. Please do get in touch if you are interested and we will arrange dates to suit.
