Dalby Forest StarFest 2018

Dalby Forest StarFest 2018

Thursday 9th August 2018 from 17:00pm to Monday 13th August 2018 12:00pm

Dalby Forest Adderstone Field
Dalby, Thornton-le-Dale, Yorkshire, YO18 7LT

Tucked away in the heart of The Great Dalby Forest is Adderstone Field and home to this annual stargazing festival. Its remote location between Pickering and Scarborough is a perfect venue for Scarborough and Ryedale Astronomical Society to hold this event.

Taking place during a new moon and being distant from light pollution the dark skies above Dalby reveal the Milky Way arching from one tree-lined horizon to the other.  Shooting stars are easily seen and this years event co-incides with the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower.

Expect an extremely friendly welcome however be mindful that being an official star camp attendees will be asked to abide by white light rules.  A hog roast and welcome drinks are offered on the Friday and each evening talks are given in the main marquee whilst the skies darken.  The forest is a great place to explore by day.

Early booking recommended!
