Festival logo

Come February we'll be celebrating the sixth Dark Skies Festival alongside the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Get ready for lots of nocturnal action as it's themed around Nature at Night. You're likely to be getting up close and personal with things that go bump in the night!

We're working on a line up to provide a fascinating insight into our precious wildlife when the sun goes down. Dark skies, free from light pollution, are of utmost importance to many species and we hope to reveal its significance through a mixture of exciting and informative activities and presentations.

Confirmed events so far include:Barn Owl by National Centre for Birds of Prey

Keep an eye on the Dark Skies Festival website to book events, they'll be live soon.
