Join us at the spectacular and historic Herstmonceux Observatory Science Centre for the Society’s AGM, followed by an afternoon social and picnic. Catch up with BIS friends and bring all the family for a relaxing afternoon at the Observatory.

The focus of the afternoon will be the social, and a raffle of tempting space-related prizes will be held.  If you feel like donating any space-related prize, perhaps an unwanted book or a piece of space memorabilia, please let us know.

Tickets are available at £15 each, raising money for the Society, with under 16s free. The ticket price includes access to the Observatory and a guided tour. Bring all your own food and drink, a picnic rug and chairs. Alternatively, full cafe facilities are available on site. To book your tickets please click here.

BIS Fellows are invited to the AGM, which will be followed by a discussion on the Society to which all Members and Fellows are welcome, so come and have your say about the BIS! Tickets for the AGM can be booked here (free of charge). Entry to the AGM is free for BIS Fellows, and free for BIS Members for the discussion afterwards.

Directions to the site can be found at For Satnav, please use the co-ordinates 50.868585, 0.348961 and not the site’s postcode.

We are arranging a car-share scheme, so if you have any spaces available, please let us know the number of seats and your route, or if you would like a lift, please advise us of your location. We’ll do our best, but no promises! Email

We look forward to seeing you there for what is sure to be a memorable afternoon!

Be sociable; support the BIS!
