Public talks

The Society holds public talks about astronomy in the Sandison Room, Trinity School, Croydon CR9 7AT approximately every other Friday during school term time. Our talks are open to all.

Talks start at 7.30pm and usually finish by 9pm including a break for refreshments. There is no charge but we suggest a donation of £3 per person to help us cover the hire of the venue and the speaker's costs (larger donations are, of course, very welcome).  Refreshments (tea & coffee) are available for a nominal charge of 50p.  Please try to bring the correct change.


As we are using a school, there are a number of procedures we must abide by. Please read this guidance for attendees at talks:
