About Astro Speakers

Our Story

Since early beginnings in February 2015 Astrospeakers has become the goto website where programme secretaries of astronomy societies and clubs find and contact suitable speakers for their meetings. Also, the general public and other interested parties use the website to locate astronomical societies to visit in their area .

We have certainly grown since those early days and there are now many astro speakers, professional lecturers and astronomical societies from all over the UK registered on the website. Recently we have expanded the website to include the entire world of astronomy speakers and societies and we look forward to continued worldwide growth in the coming months and years.

Raised Hands

We are fortunate that there are many good amateur and professional astronomers who are willing to give their time to preparing and delivering quality talks to astronomy clubs, schools and the wider public. Astro Speakers are proud to be a small but important part in making the connection between those speakers and astronomy societies.

Please continue to support us so that we can support you so and if you are an astronomer speaker in the UK and would like to join our Astro Speakers website, please click here to register now.

I'm involved with a couple of groups within the thriving local Astro community in the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and Leicestershire regions. I love the site; it's a great idea, and I can see myself using it a lot!

This is an excellent idea, long overdue, and just what is needed for astronomy outreach. I encourage all those who regularly give talks to the public, societies, and schools to sign up for this excellent website.
