Experience this lovely nature reserve by night at our its first ever Stargazing party!

Come along and admire the star studded skies, spot constellations and find craters on the moon as part of the South Downs National Park Dark Skies Festival.

We’ll keep you warmed up with hot chocolate and nibbles and have binoculars and telescopes for you to use.

Time: Drop in between 7pm and 9.30 pm. Booking essential but please pay on the night. If the weather is unsuitable we may need to cancel the event – we’ll call you on the day before the event takes place to confirm.

- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.


This event is being organised by South Downs National Park who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling. If you do attend it would be fantastic if you could let the organiser know you found them via Go Stargazing!
