Details

National Parks remain some of the darkest places in England and we are excited to celebrate this with our Dark Skies Festivals. The Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland, North York Moors and the South Downs will be running a joint festival in February 2019.

Our Dark Skies festivals are all about discovering, learning and enjoying the dark and the stars you can see as a result. This could mean getting out for an activity such as cycling, walking, running or caving at night, attending a stargazing party, or taking part in a daytime event, learning more about star constellations or making a rocket.

There are events for families, first-time stargazers and those wishing to expand their knowledge or astrophotography skills further. We work with local astronomy clubs and other star loving organisations to help you discover the wonder of the night skies above your National Parks.

Children welcome
