The Observatory Science Centre - Herstmonceux
2nd - 5th September

http://www.the-observatory.org/


We had another fantastic weekend in 2015 and are now gearing up for the 2016 event! Watch this page as more details emerge about this year's festival.

Our lovely new marquee became the lecture theatre last year and was very well received so will be used again this year giving ample space for everyone. Details of speakers will be posted when confirmed.

Bookings for the camping and weekend registration will begin on the 1st March.

Camping

Camp under the backdrop of the observatory domes:

• There are a limited number of pitches so BOOK EARLY!
• Friday, Saturday and Sunday (2nd/3rd/4th September)
• £30 per pitch regardless of the number of nights. Allows up to 5 people per pitch.
• Size of pitch: 7.5m x 7.5m. Please note that we cannot accomodate tents, caravans or motorhomes that are larger than your pitch. There are plenty of camping sites in the local area that would be more suitable for your needs.
• If you are bringing a caravan or motorhome with toilet facilities, please note that there will be no provision for emptying toilet waste.
• Pitches will be allocated beforehand on a first come first served basis. Please select your pitch from the camping site map at the top of this page before you phone the Centre to book. Please note that there are different areas for families, adults only and general camping. Please select a pitch in the appropriate area for your group. While we endeavour to update the map on a regular basis we cannot guarantee that the pitch you choose will be available when you book. Please select an alternative as a back up.
• Please read the camping rules (top of this page) very carefully before you phone the Centre to book your pitch. This document contains important information.
