The event starts in Eldon Street, Barnsley where a bus will collect attendees and transport them to the observatory with poet James Nash offering light hearted readings and musings to travellers during the journey. You’ll then receive a presentation at the observatory and stargazing if weather permits. Free of charge however booking required as spaces limited (take a little cash as donations to the observatory would be welcome and much appreciated!).
