Welcome to the Birmingham Astronomical Society (UK)

promoting astronomy since 1950...

Visitors are welcome to our monthly lectures which are usually held on the last Tuesday of the month (room 554 main building) with a 7-30pm start (there are no lectures in July and August).

If you wish to come along to one of our lectures follow the signage in the main university building or ask at the security office. See Events for details.

We also have our own club room at the University (map) which is open every Wednesday evening for astronomical discussion (and a cup of tea and a biscuit!). For security reasons access to the club room needs to be by prior arrangement, please get in touch if you want to come along. Although we are based at Aston University, we are NOT part of the academic faculty. We are amateur astronomers, and we use a room at the university as a base. (please note that the clubroom is NOT room 554).

If you arrive late on a Wednesday (after 7:30pm ) please call 0121 204 4731.
