The February half term holidays will see us once again putting on our “Guide to the Heavens” family-based space show. We will be visiting the planets of the solar system, and heading further out in to the galaxy too. If the weather allows, there will also be telescope viewing of the sky on these night too.
Tickets are £12 for adults and £8 for under 16s, with a £1 booking fee per seat.
As usual, we are grateful for the Nidderdale AONB to be arranging our ticketing. Please visit their website to book. Tickets will be available from 9am on Saturday January 13th.
