Two sessions each evening, more details see the Hidden Horizons or Daby Forest Website

Early evening – 7pm Dark Sky Exploring

Late Night – Stargazing 9:30pm

What: Enjoy a guided tour of the night sky, focusing on objects that reside far away from Earth within our Milky Way galaxy and even beyond, best observed through a large telescope. View a range of constellations and the objects that reside within them, including deep sky objects such as nebulae, star clusters and galaxies under some of the darkest skies in England and possibly even a glimpse of planets within our Solar System (depending on the time of year).

If the skies happen to be cloudy, don’t despair. The Hidden Horizons immersive star dome will be available for you to enjoy space related film and a virtual tour of the night sky.

Wrap up warm as it can get very cold on a night but we will provide hot chocolate and snacks to keep you warm. If you have your own equipment please feel free to bring it, even a pair of binoculars and a blanket to lie on can be great.

Tickets: Booking essential, places are limited.

Adults: £15

Under 16s: £9

All under 16s must be accompanied by an adult
