Brighton's Amex Stadium will host the BBC's Stargazing Live event for the South East.

The free ticketed event will take place inside the stadium on 10 January between 16:30 and 20:00 GMT.

It will include pitch-side telescope stargazing, astronaut training and a virtual "star walk" using tablet computers.

Tickets will be available until 11 December from here and will be allocated via a random draw.

The TV series, hosted by Professor Brian Cox and Dara O'Briain, returns to BBC Two on 8, 9 and 10 January.
