BBC Two’s hugely popular programme Stargazing Live is back – and to mark its return the Rugby & District Astronomical Society is hosting a stellar event designed to encourage everyone to make the most of the night sky.

The event will take place at Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School, Leamington Road, Princethorpe on Tuesday January 28 from 6pm to 9pm.

The school is ideally placed at a dark site to observe the night sky but still easily accessible for all. The evening will include a number of free family activities.

Society chairperson Johanna Jarvis said: “We are incredibly excited to be able to put on a fantastic event for all the family.”

The TV series, which returns to BBC Two, is hosted by Professor Brian Cox and Dara O’Briain. The series will include three days of live stargazing.
