Dark Skies Festival Planetarium Experience at Tan Hill

Friday 14th February 2020 from 17:00pm to 22:00pm

Tan Hill Inn

Reeth, Richmond, DL11 6ED


What better way to explore the night sky than at the world famous Tan Hill Inn – a registered Dark Sky Discovery Site! So join us on our tour of the universe and explore the wonders of the night sky in our state of the art planetarium.

The first show starts at 5pm and the last show at 9pm with as many shows we can fit in between... Then from 9:30pm until 10:30pm we'll be stargazing with telescopes if the weather permits us to do so. The event is free of charge (the planetarium is first come first served) so we hope to see you there!

This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.
