VISITORS ALWAYS WELCOME TO ANY OF OUR MEETINGS

BASOC, the Bromsgrove Astronomical Society, caters for Astronomers of all ages and experience in the local area.

We have many members ranging from highly seasoned amateurs to those without telescopes at all so don't feel too intimidated to pop along one evening at the Bromsgrove Rugby Club in Finstall.

The Rugby Club is a fantastic venue and offers dark skies with a good southern view.

If you're not sure where we are take a look on Google Maps, society location for more info.

We have membership deals to suit most astronomers. Follow the membership link on the top menu.
