Upcoming Meetings and Events

Wakefield and District Astronomical Society

Upcoming Society Meetings and Events.

Our meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month at the Old Mill pub Horbury at 7:30pm.


During the winter months, we have an extra meeting on the first Thursday of each month.


They normally consist of either a guest speaker or a presentation by a society member. Sometimes they will be informal meetings where people bring along their astro equipment for any help or advice with it, as well as just having a good general chat about all things astronomy related.


Keep an eye on our SGL thread for updates.
