#935: New Season "Kick Off" Informal Evening

Sep 4, 8:00pm - Sep 4, 10:00pm

The Priory Street Centre, YO1 6ET York

We start the 2015-2016 season off in traditional style with an informal evening, where society members and volunteers are welcome to step up and give a short talk on a subject of their choice, as long as it's vaguely astronomical. We start at 8pm, so come along a little earlier to find your seat.
