Stargazing experiences make for a great gift idea any time of the year!
The second North Pennines Stargazing Festival takes place between 20th October 2018 and 4th November 2018.
With a variety of events taking place the festival is a celebration of the fantastic dark skies above the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers plenty of opportunities to stargaze.
The festival kicks off with a presentation by the wonderful Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE of “Sky at Night” fame and includes events suitable for all ages and abilities. Scheduled to take place during the half-term period also enables younger astronomers to participate! Why not book on several events and make a short break of it!?
We’ve featured below those events that incorporate some element of stargazing or observing — for a full list of events visit the official page on the North Pennines AONB website.
