Merseyside Astronomy Day

The MAD is a chance to hear about the cutting edge research being done by some of the world's leading astrophysicists. Speakers from Universities around the UK will give 4 talks throughout the day and will make up a panel of experts ready to answer your questions.

The Merseyside Astronomy Day is most suitable for adults and over 12s, doors open 10.30am.

The on-site café will be open for lunch, but you are welcome to bring your own food. We are also conveniently located near to a number of sandwich shops and cafés. There will also be a range of stands and hands-on activities for you to explore during the breaks.
