Join star storyteller Jim Bell for a unique outdoor experience, exploring the universe through the beautifully dark night skies of the Forest of Dean.
From the hilltop vantage point in the grounds of Tudor Farmhouse, you’ll observe stars, constellations and planets, and discover the fascinating science and stories behind them.
Jim also brings with him his own portable planetarium, so you can be sure that you will see the stars whatever the weather!
You will be provided with a pair of binoculars for observing, but please also bring warm layers and boots or robust walking shoes. The experience lasts approximately two hours.
