Dark Skies Events

Our Dark Skies Festivals are all about discovering, learning and enjoying the dark and the stars you can see as a result.

Here you can find all the brilliant 'Dark Skies' events that businesses in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are holding, which take place from 14 February to 1 March 2020.
