This event is a unique photography and stargazing experience where you will get the chance to learn about night photography.
This event includes the chance to enrol on a free Learn Night Photography course by Gary Lintern beforehand. This is not compulsory to attend the event; however, you’ll appreciate the opportunity to practice your skills.
The Yorkshire Dales National Park has officially been granted the status of an ‘International Dark Sky Reserve’, making this area one of the best places in the world to view the skies above. Stargazing around the new Moon is the best time to stargaze, as the skies are lovely and dark. Once you have enjoyed the dark skies and taken some snaps, the evening will conclude with homemade soup and hot dogs.
Why not make a weekend of it? Book one of our bed & breakfast rooms or self-catering accommodation and receive a 10% discount on a two-night stay.
