Penbont House Tearooms, Bed and Breakfast
Penbont House, Elan Valley, LH6 5HS
Join us at Penbont House where we will get together with Dani Robertson, Dark Sky Officer for Eryri National Park (Snowdonia), for a special evening celebrating dark skies and the launch of her new book, ‘All Through the Night’.
After a buffet, Dani will talk about her enthusiasm for the breathtaking dark skies of Wales and her tireless work in raising awareness of this precious resource, sharing with you the excitement and adventure she has found outside when everyone else is tucked up in bed.
As a society, we have closed our curtains to the darkness, but Dani will encourage you to get out there and enjoy the night skies through her talk.
Please note that this has already taken place on 25/11/2023
