Welcome to the Cleethorpes & District Astronomical Society, founded in 1969 and located at Beacon Hill Allotments, Cleethorpes. We have our own lecture room and observatory containing a 16 inch Newtonian/Cassegrain telescope as well as other smaller telescopes. Regular monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month with invited speakers who give talks on a range of astronomical topics. We also run a beginners' course from September to June once a month on Friday evenings which is open to everyone.


Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th August the Beacon Hill Allotments Society will be holding a ‘Scarecrow Festival’ which will include craft stalls, live music, food, drinks and children’s entertainment (50p admission). Cleethorpes Astronomical Society will be opening the observatory to the public between 12.00pm and 6.00pm each day. Everyone is welcome. Weather permitting there will be the opportunity to do some solar observing. Please note that there is NO ONSITE PARKING for this event. 

New beginners’ course starts on Friday 12th September, open to everyone.
