It is my pleasure to share here the announcement that there will be a  special celebration for the 50th Anniversary of the Astronomy Centre at the University of Sussex whose first students began their studies here in 1966.

Lord Martin Rees – Astronomer Royal, Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, Past President of the Royal Society and Sussex Honorary – will be joining alumni and other former faculty for the celebratory lunch and has kindly agreed to deliver a short speech as part of the event.

Organised by the Astronomy Centre and the Development and Alumni Office, and supported by the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences , this celebration is open to all former students and their partners. Please make a note of the date and time:
