FUTURE EVENTS

Here is a list of the events that we are planning to participate in:

European Astrofest, London, Kensington Town Hall: Feb 2018 (http://europeanastrofest.com/exhibition/)

 

NEXT/CURRENT/RECENT EVENTS

IAS 2017 (International Astronomy Show): 13-14 October 2017 (http://www.ukastroshow.com/)

Location: Stoneleigh Park, Cubbington (between Royal Leamington Spa and Coventry)

This is probably the largest event in the UK plus the most convenient venue due to the huge space available. It's not next door to us, but 3 hours drive is quite acceptable.

As usual, we will be offering lots of discounts from a wide range of products, so come and visit us at our boot (far left corner).

Please let us know if you want us to bring anything with us to show you or if you already know what you will want to buy...

 

PAST EVENTS

Herstmonceux Astronomy Festival: 1 - 3 September 2017 (http://www.the-observatory.org/astronomy_festival_2017)

We love to participate in this event, not only because it is only an hour drive, but also because the weather is usually very nice this part of the year...or at least, since we participate we've never had a bad weather (...touch wood...;o)

South West Astronomy Fair: 12 August 2017 (http://www.southwestastrofair.com/)

North-West Astronomy Show in Liverpool: 1 - 2 July 2017 (http://nwastrofest.co.uk/)

We didn't actually participate, but many products that we distribute in the UK were present by one of our dealers, Tring Astronomy. Thanks for their co-operation and good work Primaluce lab, Fornax and ZWO products were presented to the visitors of this local astronomy show that unfortunately was the last one in this series of events in Runcorn as the organisers relocated to France. Hopefully someone else will take up the idea and start it again one day in the future.

Astronomy Day organised by ESAS

De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, East Sussex on 5 June 2012
It was a nice, sunny day (at least in the morning), so that many visitors were able to have a look at the Sun through a solar telescope provided by ESAS (East Sussex Astronomical Society). It was actually just one day before the big day, the transit of Venus, so our Eclipse glasses were extremely popular!


Here Zoltan represents 365Astronomy...


Here Alex helping out (sacrificing his holidays...well done!) whilst I was examining the portable planetarium in the theatre...


Possibly the biggest Star Party in the U.K.:
Autumn Equinox Sky Camp 2011 in Kelling Heath

Here we are first time on such an event, presenting some of our products... making some friends... and enjoying the beautiful weather...


Finally, everything on display and now relaxed... waiting for customers...


Helping out a customer who is quite busy with his search in a box of great Astronomik and Baader filters...



Here some happy customers visiting our pitch...


A view to the "street" of dealers; do you recognise the celestial umbrella hanging from our gazebo?


Finally, unpacking... long journey to home... can you believe it will all fit in this Citroen Picasso Xsara?
