2021 April Festival
The UK Astronomy 2021 April festival was a month long festival of free talks and events aimed at beginners to inspire people to go out and look up! As it was the Easter holidays and kinda
the last month for dark nights in the astronomy season, we thought it was a great time to celebrate this awesome hobby. We had lots of talks to enjoy, plus facebook livestreams
looking through a telescope with one of the experts from our charity.
If you missed any of our festival events and talks, you can watch them on our YouTube channel.
TGP NOMINAL Podcasts
Blast off into the podisphere with TGP NOMINAL, your monthly look at all things science fact & science fiction. TGP NOMINAL is brought to you by the creative force

proved to be a success with the visitors to the World Space Week website.
Every month we run a photo competition. It’s completely free to enter but only one picture per person per month is allowed. Each month will have a different category
which will be announced on our Facebook group. The idea is to get you out looking up, trying different things, learning about astrophotography and having fun.
