As part of the Dark Skies Festival 2022, we are delighted to announce an evening star gazing with Martin Whipp, the Director of the Lime Tree Observatory in Grewelthorpe, under some of the darkest skies in the UK.

Come and enjoy a warming supper and a presentation, before stepping outside for some star spotting and astronomy, accompanied by expert guidance.

Suitable for families and all ages.
