Kielder Forest Star Camp - Spring 2024

Kielder Forest Star Camp - Spring 2024

Wednesday 6th March 2024 from 12:00pm to Monday 11th March 2024 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, mingle, and marvel under the sometimes clear night sky.

Whether you are a veteran or a novice, you are welcome to join in. The event also features a main day at nearby Kielder Castle, free Astro talks and an Astro car boot sale. All attendees will be asked to abide by strict no-white-light rules (red light only after dusk) so that everyone can allow their eyes to adjust to appreciate the fantastic dark skies fully.
