In honour of our namesake, the controversial astrologist and herbalist Nicholas Culpeper, we’re hosting an evening tour of the night sky from our rooftop. We’ll be stopping by a couple of planets and constellations on the way, all guided by astronomy experts, Dark Sky Wales. Using professional high strength telescopic equipment, this will be a night you won’t forget.
Everyone is invited to the rooftop to relax and take in the sights before the night gets properly underway. Guests will receive a welcome drink (non alcoholic) and some mouth watering bar snacks from The Culpeper kitchen.
Martin will give a brief explanation of the cosmos, after which we’ll begin observing. With the help of a pretty hefty Dobsonian telescope, we’ll take a tour of Saturn and Mars, stopping by a couple of nebulae and star clusters along the way.
