'The Bath Astronomers are a group of local Somerset amateur astronomers sharing a passion for observing the night and daytime sky ... We hold regular monthly meet-ups for informal talks about astronomy (and occasionally other things!) on the last Wednesday of the month. We also enjoy the monthly Herschel Society Lectures which are focused towards the science of astronomy and the history of those involved. All with an interest in astronomy are welcome from beginners to old hands.'

'An active and flourishing organisation with about 50 enthusiastic members whose ages range from 17 to 90. Our membership includes every type of geologist from recreational fossil-hunters to academic and professional geologists ... Most of our meetings takes the form of a lecture which is always very professional, up-to-date and invariably entertaining. The lectures are varied and given by geologists from University Departments or from industry. We hold regular field meetings and sometimes there is an annual field-weekend in an agreeable locality.'

'Where else can you see a world class speaker for as little as £2.00? Since 1824, the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution has hosted almost nightly lectures and created wonderful exhibitions and cultural events for the people of Bath. Thanks to the power of digital technology, BRLSI’s lectures and exhibitions now reach audiences across the globe, whilst at the same time keeping its home crowd happily entertained in the Elwin Room. Whether you are interested in Shakespeare or Shamanism, meteorites or Mexican murals, there is always something on the BRLSI lecture and exhibition programme to suit all tastes.'

William Herschel is known today for the contribution he made to Astronomy, although for at least half his professional life he was a musician and composer ... We arrange Astronomy Lectures in Bath in collaboration with the BRLSI, the University of Bath, and others.'
