The Star Barn - Ingram Valley
Ingram Valley Farm, Alnwick, Northumberland, NE66 4LU
Join the team from The Star Barn on a fascinating journey into space with resident Astronomer Dr Adrian Jannetta FRAS (Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society).
Enjoy an evening of stargazing from Ingram Valley’s fabulous dark sky location, including a guided tour of the skies and observing incredible deep-sky objects using telescopes.
Hot food, cake and refreshments will be provided for the evening show and astronomy; the event also includes an informal and engaging talk by Adrian from the comfort of the Green Space that is Ingram Village Hall.
Surrounded by the stunning scenery of Ingram Valley in the Northumberland National Park, The Star Barn is very aptly named, sitting in one of the best ‘dark skies’ astronomy areas of the country.
