Calendar of Events

Meetings are held each month on Tuesday evenings, commencing at 7:30pm and concluding around 9pm. Our main meeting programme runs from September to May, usually on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, and over the summer we also get together on the first Tuesdays of June, July and August.

Admission is free to members, and visitors are welcome at £2 per visit.

Our meetings include talks from Members and Guest Speakers, plus more informal interactive "Activity Nights".

The programme of our future meetings is shown below, but may occasionally be subject to late changes, so if you're travelling from some distance, please contact the BAS Commitee by email to boltonastro@gmail.com to confirm before making your journey.
