ANOTHER NIGHT WITH THE STARS!

Saturday February 20 from 6pm til late

The Drill Hall, Lower Church Street, Chepstow

Booking essential (half hour timed slots for the indoor planetarium)

Tickets £5 adult £3 child from Chepstow Museum tel 01291 625981

 

Chepstow Museum is holding another star gazing event at the Drill Hall with the Usk Astronomical Society, back by popular demand following a hugely popular first event last October. Members of the Society will be bringing experts and instruments to explore and discover the night sky and unlock its mysteries. Whatever the weather, you’ll get the feel of being out on a really starry night in the amazing indoor planetarium. Lie back and see the motions of the stars, discover the constellations and the myths and legends that surround them. There will also be a great opportunity to look at the real night sky through telescopes, if the weather is favourable, looking at planets, galaxies, nebulae and double stars and finding out about their origins and significance. If you have a telescope of your own and would like the experts to show you how to get the best out of it, or help with setting it up, bring it along. Come back down to earth, with a display of meteorites that can be touched and handled, discussed and explored. Chepstow Museum will also be making a constellation of craft activities for families. Half hour sessions in the indoor planetarium, need to be booked as space is limited – contact Chepstow Museum on 01291 625981 soon as early slots are booking fast!

 

 

Chepstow Museum’s Drop-in-and-Make Craft Afternoon

The Drill Hall, Lower Church St, Chepstow

Thursday February 18 2-4pm

 

Get creative with the kids this half term and have fun with friends and family at our craft afternoon session. We supply some ideas, templates and materials, you bring your own creativity to make this your own. Suitable for children of all ages, all children must be accompanied by an adult, up to 3 children per adult. Because of budget constraints we are asking for donations towards the cost of materials (suggested £2 for children aged 3+)

 

There are also lots of things to see and do at Chepstow Museum every day. Things to make, drawers to explore, costume to try on, games to play. And our touch screen interactives with our challenging salmon game to play. Come in and take a look!
