About the Society

Welcome to the Cleethorpes & District Astronomical Society, founded in 1969 and located at Beacon Hill Allotments, Cleethorpes. The Society is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales as charity no. 1186764. We have our own lecture room and observatory containing a 16 inch Newtonian/Cassegrain telescope as well as other smaller telescopes. Regular monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month with invited speakers who give talks on a range of astronomical topics (click to download a meetings poster for 2022, 2022 with speaker bios or 2023). We also run beginners sessions from September to June once a month on Friday evenings which are open to everyone.
