With regret, all events at the RMS, including our monthly SWHAS meetings are suspended until further notice due to the Coronavirus crisis. We will keep members informed of any developments by email and update our website with any further news in the coming weeks. In the meantime, stay safe.

Our monthly meetings are held at the Royal Masonic School, Rickmansworth. (See the Location page for map and plan). 

The main talk is followed by refreshments and a tour of the night sky in the planetarium.

These meetings are usually on a Friday and start at 8pm, unless otherwise stated.
