20th Feb and 6th March
Varsity Hotel & Spa will hold two astronomy master classes. Taking place on our breath-taking Roof Top Terrace, the evening will give attendees a unique view of the beautiful East Anglia sky and a crash course in understanding the cosmos above it.
After exploring the heavens, guests will descend to our restaurant, SIX Panoramic Bar and Brasserie, to dine on a sumptuous two-course meal with a glass of bubbles. Our relaxed Brasserie serves delicious dishes from our Wood Stone oven, Grill and Rotisserie such as Wood Stone Roasted Salmon, Lemon and rosemary Roasted Half Chicken and Chips with Truffle and Parmesan and other earthly delights which will provide the perfect antidote to an evening above the Cambridge skyline. We also offer a fabulous range of Cocktails and with over 30 Gins paired with 8 different tonics.
Paul Fellows, Chairman of the esteemed Cambridge Astronomical Association and Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, will host the master class and give guests a unique guided tour of the sky, utilising high powered laser pointers to pick out and explain the most beautiful and interesting celestial objects.
Attendees will observe directly through telescopes for a deeper look into the cosmos, whilst the nature and mysteries of the stars, planets, moons and galaxies that can be seen overhead are explained.
If our British weather is too unkind on the night the master class will be held inside with a unique indoor presentation of the night sky.
Tickets are limited and are available for hotel guests and members of the general public for £49, which includes the astronomy master class and a two course meal accompanied by a glass of bubbles. Guests need to arrive at The SIX Panoramic Bar and Brasserie at 6.30pm and then we shall head to the roof for a 6:45pm start.
