Partridge Nest Farm Pods and Cottage
Sleights, Whitby, YO22 5ES
Join renowned astronomer Richard Darn from the Go Stargazing team for a night on the moon in the company of glittering stars with a special Dark Sky Festival sleepover at Partridge Nest Pods.
The campfire will be lit and after a welcome hot chocolate on arrival, get yourself settled in your toasty warm camping pod then, after a hearty chilli supper we will be taking you on a journey through the night sky using powerful telescopes, spying craters and mountains on the moon and even showing you how to take simple pictures with your mobile phone.
This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.
