Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2018

The Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2018 takes place between 20th October 2018 and 4th November 2018. A wide variety of astronomically themed events are scheduled including everything from space-movies through to astrophotography tuition and public stargazing. Many events take place during half-term and are thus perfect for families with space-interested children!

The festival also celebrates the wonderful dark skies above Exmoor which lead it to becoming recognised by the International Dark Sky Association as Europe’s very first Dark Sky Reserve in Autumn 2011.

Below we have featured those events that include stargazing — for a full event listing and further details visit the official page at Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2018.
