 Our Hosts: 

King's Lynn and District Astronomy Society was formed in 2007 with the aim of promoting the many aspects of astronomy to all ages, beginners and experienced, and to provide a suitable location where all those interested can meet and share knowledge and experience.

To further our aim to promote astronomy we offer outreach talks and practical experiences to all groups in the West Norfolk area.

We are happy to visit your location often bringing telescopes to give your pupils, scouts, or members the chance to see firsthand the wonders of the night sky.
