Hi Mike, welcome to the LAS Forums :-)
The event at Court Hey Park is definitely still on. I don’t personally know the exact details but I’ll have an ask about for you and we can get the information up on our Stargazing Live page so it’s easy to find too.
There should be plenty of telescopes about and hopefully it’ll be clear enough to use them. If the weather’s bad, we’ll still be there and you will still be able to see some scopes, just not any stars or planets :-)

Bird: "It was of great symbolic importance to our ancestors, it’s called ’Arthur Dent Throwing the Nutrimatic Cup’. "
Arthur: "Sorry, what did you say?"
