If you are interested in astronomy, The Stratford upon Avon Astronomical Society is for you! Our members range from people with a casual interest in the subject to serious amateurs and professionals. You don't need any specialist knowledge to join, nor do you need to own a telescope.

We normally meet twice a month at the splendid village hall in Alderminster, a few miles south of Stratford [details & map].

On the first Tuesday of each month, we have a practical workshop, covering topics oriented around observational astronomy. On the third Tuesday of each month we have a talk by a visiting guest speaker, usually a professional astronomer. Details of our next meeting are listed at the top of the page. For complete information about upcoming events, check the Schedule of Meetings section.

If you're interested, simply turn up at one of our meetings. There's no need to book. Visiting is free, and there's absolutely no pressure to join. For travel directions and more information, go to the About the Society section. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to Contact us.
