West Didsbury Astronomical Society was formed to bring people together who have an interest in Astronomy. If you are interested in astronomy and you’re in the Manchester (UK) area come and meet other local astronomers. 

Everyone is welcome from the complete beginner to the more experienced astronomer. There are regular meetings during the year and ad hoc observing sessions.

For further details – please feel free to attend a society meeting – meetings are usually held on the second Monday of every month (except in August) at Nazarene Theological College from April 2023.
