West Buckland School, in coordination with the North Devon Astronomical Society, will once again host the Sir Patrick Moore Memorial Lecture and Black Tie Dinner on Friday 8th June 2018. This year's lecture will be given by Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, perhaps the world's most famous female scientist, who started her career by discovering pulsars while at Cambridge University.

The annual event is always popular with students, parents and the wider community and this year's event promises to be the best yet.

Tickets for the black tie meal and lecture, served in The Karslake Hall at 6pm, are £25 for a single and £45 for a double ticket. For those just wanting to attend the lecture, which takes place at 7.45pm in the 150 theatre, the price is £5 and free for students.
