Dark Skies Festival

About

Alongside the Yorkshire Dales National Park we're delighted to be celebrating our seventh Dark Skies Festival. A wonderful opportunity to get out and appreciate the starry skies of our International Dark Sky Reserve.

As always we love to welcome back the annual favourites such as night zips at in Dalby Forest, ghost walks in Robin Hood's Bay, stargazing and trails at the National Park Centres, mindful meanders, astrophotography workshops and night navigation experiences.

This year we're pleased to welcome new, exciting additions that include a dark skies exhibition, mindful night walk in Whitby, dark skies run, art workshops and new moon gatherings.
