Friday 1st - Sunday 3rd September 2017
The Observatory Science Centre, Herstmonceux, Hailsham
To celebrate our 21st birthday, BIG is holding a party in our ancestral home of Herstmonceux on the evening of Saturday 2nd September.
Although BIG was established 25 years ago, what we now call the ‘BIG Event’ didn’t begin until a few years later and for many years, the BIG Event was held in Herstmonceux. So, we will return for our 21st birthday party to enjoy one another’s company, chat about the good old (or new) days and eat cake.
BIG 21st Birthday Party is Saturday evening's session. Join us for this only or come for the whole weekend to also enjoy The Observatory Science Centre and Astronomy Festival. Please see their website for the provisional programme of Astronomy Festival events.
Overnight camping is FREE (courtesy of BIG) if you book ANY of the options below. All pitches for BIG members and their families are in the same area. If camping is not your thing, there is accommodation in the nearby Herstmonceux Castle.
