We are pleased to announce that AstroCamp will be returning after the pandemic! Whether a complete beginner or an experienced astronomer, you are guaranteed a warm welcome at this friendly star camp. Make new friends, get hints and tips and share stargazing stories under the dark skies of Brecon Beacons Dark Sky Reserve. You’re welcome even if you do not have a telescope — there will be no shortage of astronomers only too pleased to share their views of the heavens. Great for those with interest in Astronomy and a wonderful break away from the city lights — and there’s a pub close by too! Tickets are on sale from 1st September 2021 via the AstroCamp website.
