Why not take advantage of the interest that the Dark Skies Festival generates and host your own event? It’s a great opportunity to promote your businesses, try something new, interesting and a bit different outside of the peak visitor season. The Tourism team will be happy to help advise and support you.
Our Dark Skies Festival has grown with interest and popularity, so much so that we have created a mini Festival in October: ‘Dark Skies Fringe Festival’.
Below is your kit to help you to host the best Dark Skies Festival event you can, including, astronomer contacts who are very keen and enthusiastic, ideas and inspiration for event themes, our logo, an opportunity to feature on our map, free stargazing guides and many more tips and tricks.
