Your chance to see Mars in our Manx Night sky

Join us at the farm for an informative evening presented by the fabulous local astronomer Howard Parkin, on the exploration of the Red Planet we call Mars. We are sure this evening will open the door to boundless curiosity and discovery.

Following the talk we will take a wander outside to view the night sky and Howard will share his knowledge with you so that you can then watch the skies on your own and be able to identify other stars & planets.

Cost - £10 per adult £5 per child or family tickets for 2 adults & 2 children £25, which will include refreshments of homemade soup.

Tickets will be limited so book early to avoid disappointment

Please contact Jane or Sharon to book tickets by emailing fundraising@thechildrenscentre.org.im or call 800 000


Should the weather not be fair on the 23rd October, we will hold it the following evening on Saturday 24th October.
