Update on 18 March 2020 

In the light of the unknown duration of special measures during the Covid-19 epidemic, the decision has reluctantly been made to postpone the NWAF to 2021

 

The North West Astronomy Festival is back, with a new date and a new venue.

It is unfortunate that it falls the weekend before IAS (and the weekend after Kelling star aprty) two of the bigger events in the UK astro calendar.

Better than clashing with one or the other though! :)

Announcement from the NWAF committee

It is very sad for us to say this but in view of the escalating Covid-19 situation, the North West Astronomy Festival management committee have reluctantly concluded that it is in everyone's best interest that we re-schedule the Festival to 2021.

We have made huge progress in planning the event and as a team we are well positioned to work towards an even better Festival in 2021.

We would like to thank everyone for their support so far, especially the astronomy societies who have been so keen, and the wonderful speakers and traders who had agreed to come along.

We will be back in touch as soon as things settle down. In the meantime, watch for updates on our website www.nwastrofest.co.uk and via social media.”
