Kielder Forest Star Camp - Spring 2017

Wednesday 22nd March 2017 from 12:00pm to Sunday 26th March 2017 12:00pm

Kielder Campsite
Kielder Village, Kielder, Northumberland, NE48 1ER

Kielder Forest Star Camp is staged annually in spring and autumn in the darkest part of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park.

People come from around the country and camp on Kielder Campsite (although some prefer to stay in B and Bs, lodges and hotels) and bring telescopes if they have them.

Many come for all five days, others a minimum of two. These events don’t offer any formal instruction for beginners, but many observers are happy to share their views with others. People do their own thing and mingle and marvel under the sometimes clear night sky.

Whether you are a veteran or a novice who are welcome to join us. Each event also features a main day at nearby Kielder Castle featuring free astro talks and astro car boot sale.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 22/03/2017
