About this Event

10am – 4pm.

Marvel at our enormous star, the Sun, as experts from the Orwell Astronomical Society help you safely view it via a telescope projection on a screen. Kids can learn more about the sun with solar activities.

Please note that this event will take place on the lawn outside Christchurch Mansion so will be weather dependent, and may have to be cancelled in adverse conditions.

This activity is suitable for children aged 5+. Responsible adults must remain with their child throughout.

For useful information, such as how to find us, what to expect when you arrive and what facilities we have, we recommend reading our Access information: Access at Christchurch Mansion | Ipswich Museums
