Ode to the festival

If all in the Universe is your inter est

You must go and visit North West Astro fest

Reflectors, Refractors and all of the rest

A selection of scopes that are only the best


With filters and lenses to help in your quest

Telescopic advice, here in the North West

A display of great meteorites, don’t miss I suggest

And tales of their falling told at your request.


Professional Astronomers, put them to the test

At the Q&A session, find who’s brainiest

With a supper that’s social, it’s time for a rest

A time for a chat and a bit of a jest

Of fests astronomical it’s simply the best

You surely can’t miss North West Astrofest
