BBC Stargazing Live - Local Event

I was looking up local stargazing events on the BBC earlier, after those brilliant Stargazing Live shows last week, and I was very pleased to find that the Herstmonceux observatory is opening to visitors next Saturday evening! Hooray! We went to the castle there in 2009 for the Medieval festival, and when I saw the observatory, I was desperate to have a go. Now it looks like I might be able to! =) Fingers crossed for a clear night!
