Please note the following programme is subject to change.

For those arriving on Friday night, contact James Troi. Please note Karen Malbon, Brian Young and David Male will not be arriving until Saturday.

Weather permitting we might try and make use of the knowledge Alex Cherney shared regarding astrophotography and capture some stars on Friday night.

Saturday
