Bring along your torch and blanket and visit the Deer Park at night discovering some of the nocturnal wildlife of the Deer Park and try out a bit of star gazing.
Find out about the bats and owls that roost in the Deer Park. Find out more about light pollution and take a look at the stars and comets of the night sky. Bring along a picnic blanket and look up to the sky and we might be lucky enough to catch the meteor shower before 10pm.
