Solar Viewing @ The White Lion Baldock High Street
May 14 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

We have all looked up at the night sky and marvelled at the stars and the moon swirling above us. Some of us may have used binoculars or a telescope to look in more detail.

But how many of us have looked at the sun?

Not very many………..why?

Well, it’s very bright, hurts your eyes, and if you put a lens in the way will burn and start fires! It’s dangerous!

Letchworth and District Astronomical Society (LDAS) in conjunction with The Baldock Festival have organised a solar viewing day to change this!

Come along between 12:00 and 16:00 when there will be specialist equipment and members of LDAS available to let you look at the sun safely and join the small group of people who have observed the sun!

School Disco with BEF
May 14 @ 8:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Raffle with typically 80s prizes, so bring your tuck shop money – funds raised to go to the Herts & Essex Air Ambulance. Fancy Dress mandatory, otherwise detention will be given. Sixth-Formers and older only.

The management of The Orange Tree ask that you please don’t hang around in Big Park drinking 20/20 and White Lightning before you arrive, or they will tell your parents.
