Together with the Yorkshire Dales National Park we're celebrating our sixth Dark Skies Festival. We're going online following the success of the virtual programme during the Fringe Festival in October. Yorkshire's pristine dark skies will always exist and we're going to do our best to share that with you, wherever you are in the country!

We appreciate nothing beats getting out into the National Park's great wilderness but rest assured we're working hard to bring you interactive, inspiring and interstellar presentations across the two weeks. This year's focus is on Nature at Night so look out for lots of animal themed activities.

Keep an eye on the Dark Skies Festival website to book events. We'll be adding them as soon as they're confirmed.
