InfoThe Society holds lecture evenings at the Royal Russell School, Coombe Lane, Croydon. These are held every second Friday during Term Time more details are on our Programme page. Lectures start ay 19:45 and end around 22:00, We normally start with an introductory talk and club news followed by a short refreshment break the evening is then completed by the main lecture as shown in the programme.

A map is available showing the location. If you visit the school the clue to finding the lecture theatre is to look for the large building with a floodlit clock on top - this is called The Great Hall. The lectures are held in the basement of The Great Hall, the entrance is located at the far end of the building at the far side. Cars should be left in the car park on the left near the entrance. Visitors are requested to sign the visitors book in the Lecture Theatre when they arrive.

On Fridays where there is no lecture we hold informal lectures and carry out practical observing using the club's 18 inch and smaller telescopes located at our Observatory at Kenley. It is advisable to wear warm clothing as the Observatory is not heated. Members & visitors are required to sign the logbook at Kenley when they arrive and when they leave.

We currently have a membership of about 100 and generally get 40 to 60 people at the lectures.
