Whether you are a school wanting to add something a little different to your science offering; a Brownie pack, Cub or Scout group aiming for your ‘Astronomy’ badges; or a U3A, WI or Rotary group looking for a fun, educational workshop, UK Astronomy has a session for you.

A sample of some of the workshops that UK Astronomy offer:



See Our Sun

Would you like to see the surface of the Sun?

View sunspots, flares and perhaps even catch a glimpse of a eclipse or planet transit?


Book a solar workshop and UK Astronomy can provide the equipment and expertise to allow you and your students/group to view the sun safely.




Our Solar System

This workshop uses inflatable planets, Sun and pictures that our members have taken from their own gardens, giving you a hands on demonstration of how you can see our nearest neighbours, with some fun facts about them thrown in.


This can also include a beginners guide to what you can see in the UK skies using your eyes, binoculars and of course telescopes .





Stargazing Evenings

Want to see planets, learn about the skies or just try out some telescopes UK Astronomy has a wide range of family friendly gear for you to use, and friendly knowledgeable volunteers.


Tie this in with our Solar System talk and you have the perfect combination for a truly out of this world experience.





Most teachers are not experts on space and astronomy, but they don't have to be.  UK Astronomy can provide the expertise in a way that will excite and inspire.

For Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Cubs, Scouts and Beavers we can tailor a workshop  to cover the content necessary for gaining the Stargazer and Astronomy badges. The workshops are a combination of talks, video footage and hands-on activities.


Costs and length of sessions can be negotiated over a cuppa to suit the size, funds and locality of your group.
