Just a quick heads up to say that I’ll be appearing at two exciting events this month. The first, next weekend, is the 2014 North West Astronomy Festival in Runcorn, Cheshire. I’ll be giving a talk on the Saturday (11 October) about the ‘Secrets of Celestial Light’. Here’s the flyer:
You can get tickets to my talk and the rest of the event – and see the full line-up for the weekend, which includes Damian Peach, Helen Keen and Jon Culshaw – at the festival website here. I’ll also be doing a book signing for the Knowledge Observatory on the Saturday afternoon if you’d like to pick up a copy of The Practical Astronomer or The Night Sky Month by Month.
The second event I’m appearing at this month is a theatre-based astronomy chat show called Tour of the Universe. This exciting new touring production is visiting the Nottingham Playhouse on the 20th of October and I’ll be the special guest of presenters Neil and Jane on the night. Tickets to the show can be booked through the Nottingham Playhouse box office or online here.
