The events below are accurate at the time of entry, but particularly in light of COVID restrictions we advise checking the websites to see if they are still taking place.

Dark Skies Festival
Feb 18 – Feb 26 all-day
Dark Skies Festival @ North York Moors National Park | Helmsley | England | United Kingdom

Enjoy a guided tour of the night sky, focusing on objects in our solar system (the moon and other planets) as well as stars that reside far away from Earth within our Milky Way galaxy. View a range of constellations and the objects that reside within them, including deep sky objects such as nebulae, star clusters and galaxies. All attendees will get plenty of opportunities to view through our large telescope under some of the darkest skies in England in the heart of Dalby Forest.

We also have our indoor planetarium on standby so if the weather is poor and we can’t see any stars, or if we get very cold we can come inside and warmup, and enjoy a tour of the night sky and some immersive films about our solar system, galaxy and universe. This means we will only cancel an event if Dalby is inaccessible due to weather conditions.

– Various dates available throughout Festival. 7.30pm start. Events sell quickly so don’t delay booking!
