Bowland Dark Skies Festival

The Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) has officially recongised as having some of the darkest skies in England. See the kids eyes light up this half term as they discover the magical sights of the planets and constellations visible above Bowland. Feast your eyes on everything from the Plough to the Milky Way!

Running from Saturday 16th until Sunday 24th February the themed week includes guided star gazing and astrophotography with local amateur astronomer, Robert Ince; the chance to book into one of Bentham Golf Club’s glamping pods or lodges and search the dark skies until the wee hours; wrap up warm and listen to nocturnal tales with storyteller, Sue Allonby and an invitation to step inside Yorkshire Planetarium’s mobile dome for night-sky films with the wow factor.

Please check The Forest of Bowland website for event availability and booking.
