Stargazing festival by High Weald AONB
Communities across the AONB will celebrate their unique and historical view of the stars at the first-ever Wild About Dark Skies Festival, running from Saturday, 18th of February, to Sunday, 26th of February 2023.
Free events will occur throughout the week in Battle, Burwash, Crowhurst, Etchingham, Ticehurst and Wadhurst, and everyone is welcome!
Activities include planetarium shows, astronomy demonstrations, special guest speakers, dark skies walks, light pollution workshops, dark skies storytelling for children and much more…
As well as celebrating the High Weald’s dark skies, the Festival also aims to raise awareness about the negative impacts of light pollution – including wildlife, climate change and our well-being – and provide some tips and advice for how we can all do our bit to reduce it.
