What do we do?

The Space Association holds free public meetings on the fourth Monday of every month except December.

Members are sent a newsletter before each meeting, with notice of what’s on at the meeting and other interesting space news. An email distribution list has also been established for those with Internet access.

The Space Association organises special exhibitions, displays and lectures from time to time. We also arrange for members to visit aerospace facilities and other interesting places not normally seen by the general public. Social activities such as film nights and barbecues are also held throughout the year.
