Welcome to the East Anglian Rocketry Society's website. Here you will find information about flying rockets in the UK. There is info on the Rocketry Society, the latest news about what we're up to, when we launch rockets, where we launch rockets from, some photographs from previous rocket launches and some technical articles written by our members. You can also contact us for more information about the Society.

We currently hold flying days on the first Sunday of the month from January to December, they generally start at around 10am and carry on until it gets either too dark, or too cold. Everyone is welcome to come along and fly with us, it doesn't matter what type of rocket you fly as we've had all sorts of different shapes and sizes with motors from ¼A to M impulse flown from the site.

Spectators are always welcome but please do take note of the information in our Disclaimer (pdf 83kb) and "Do's and Don'ts" (pdf 29kb). Also we do appreciate you letting us know if you are coming via our contact page.
