Stargazing evening to kick off Wanstead Fringe 2019


An evening of stargazing in the grounds of Wanstead Cricket Club will mark the start of this year’s Wanstead Fringe.

“There are two chances to see the night sky through powerful telescopes with experts on hand to show you what to look out for,” said organiser Ricardo Cerezo. The free event will take place on 6 September from 8pm to 9pm, and will be repeated the following evening. “One of England’s great astronomers, James Bradley (1693–1762), is buried in the churchyard next door.”
