This year, over 400 pupils visited the schools sessions in the festival, and several hundred members of the public came along for public lectures and evening observations.

Highlights included observing Jupiter and the Moon from the quadrangle, and a panel discussion on the dark cosmos with UCL physicists and astronomers.
