To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the formation of the IAA (formerly the Belfast Centre of the Irish Astronomical Society) in 1974, we are having a Celebratory / Seasonal Dinner on Friday 28 November, in a private suite in the Maynard Sinclair Pavilion, Upper Newtownards Road, Stormont, Belfast. We have got an excellent deal on this so it's not to be missed!
There is free parking at the venue. Directions to venue will be given later
As well as the meal, we will have some light-hearted fun, including an after-dinner address by one of the top astronomers in the country, Prof Alan Fitzsimmons of QUB: this will be not so much about astronomy, as all the interesting, embarrassing and hilarious things that happen in the background when pursuing a career as a top professional observational astronomer.
There will also be a ‘rogues gallery’ of photos and memorabilia of various member and events over the years – you might find yourself in the ‘Most Wanted’ section. Plus a fun quiz with spot prizes!
We hope to get a really good attendance at this event, which is open to partners and friends too if you wish.
