Covid 19 – May Update

As the third road map step approaches, and we have confirmation from the Government that there will be more restrictions lifted, we are happy to say Grassholme Observatory will be open from Monday 17th May.

In line with Government guidelines, please make sure you adhere to the rule of six when making bookings.

To help to put your mind at rest with regards to booking one of our events, the health and safety of our visitors and team is paramount when visiting our observatory. For all May events, we have reduced our capacity by 50%. Along with this, all individuals will be required to use hand sanitiser and wear face coverings whilst in the classroom, and follow the one-way system operating throughout the facility.
If we are required to cancel any of our events for any reason, we will make a full refund or give the option of a transfer to another date.

Please help to keep our visitors and employees safe, by continuing to wash your hands, keeping socially distanced from others and wear your mask when moving around inside.
