Haw Wood Farm Caravan Park
Hinton, Saxmundham, IP17 3QT
Haw Wood Farm are hosting an exciting Outreach Star Party. This is aimed at all budding astronomers and those who would like to spend a few nights learning about the night sky while enjoying a relaxed weekend camping.
We will have astronomy based crafts and quizzes during the day and we will be cooking a warming Chilli in the early the evening to set you up for a night under the stars! At 7pm an Introduction to the Night Sky will be led by Andrew Robertson of the Breckland Astronomical Society.
This is an ideal family adventure for young and older children to enjoy.
