Braes of Glenlivet Village Hall

Storyteller Nana Tumova will enchant us with seasonal and celestial stories from 4:30 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m. Nana is an acclaimed Traditional Oral Storyteller and a nature connection guide. She loves stories of the wild, and her favourite place to tell them is out on the land. She is the creator of the Story Apothecary Podcast, where she dispenses stories as medicine.

If you want to attend the storytelling, please arrive a few minutes before each session. If the weather is good, the storytelling mat takes place outside a campfire otherwise, they will be shared in the hall.

As day turns to night, our local astronomy group will host telescope and stargazing sessions for all ages and abilities from 18:45. Come along for an introduction to the constellations, enjoy a laser-guided sky tour or try out our community telescope. If it is cloudy at night, there will be an indoor presentation in the hall.

All events are free and are on a drop-in basis.

Please note that this has already taken place on 12/11/2023

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
