Solarsphere Astronomy Festival @ Penmaenau Farm
Builth Wells, Llanelwedd, LD2 3RD
Solarsphere brings together astronomy and music for a festival that can be enjoyed by everyone.
There’ll be plenty to keep children entertained with special workshops, astronomy-related activities and arts. In addition, talks will be given by eminent astronomers and professional science communicators.
Dark sky friendly camping will mean you get fantastic views of the night sky. Top it off with live music from well known and up and coming artists and you’ve got all the elements for a great little festival.
Solarsphere is a wonderful opportunity to take the family away for a weekend break under the stars!
