Tea, Talk & Telescope
Want to know more about astronomy? Want to see the wonders of the Universe?
The Pi Day is a one-off event but here at the University of Birmingham we host a series of public talks. Tea, Talk and Telescope is a series of public lectures organised by the University of Birmingham Astronomical Society and the School of Physics and Astronomy. These lectures are aimed at members of the general public and are free to all. Future event details will be posted here accordingly. The lectures generally take place on a Thursday evening and are followed by night sky observing with a combination of telescopes focusing on the Astronomical society's historic Grubb telescope (dating from 1872) - of course this is weather dependent and if we are beaten by the weather then you can guarantee that there will be time for tea and discussion after the talks.
Our next public talk is "Poetry of the Night: A marvellous union between science and literature" by David H. Levy on 9th March 2009 at 7:30pm (with coffee and tea at 7pm)
More information about these events can be found at www.talkandtelescope.org.uk
Talks Location: Unless otherwise stated the talks take place in the Large Lecture Theatre (S02) of the Poynting Physics Building (R13 on University Map) at the University of Birmingham. Directions to the University can be found on the University's visitor information pages and a campus map can be found here.
