Festival Stars under Dark Skies SOLD OUT

2nd Feb 2024 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The North York Moors famous Dark Sky Festival begins on the 9 Feb, but Richard Darn is offering a sneak preview! With no moon in the sky we'll see more stars, plus amazing objects like star clusters and nebula will look at their best. We've also got a special reduction on ticket prices to mark the Festival.

The Star Hub at Sutton Bank provides a warm indoor space for colourful presentations with a purpose built viewing area alongside. If it's cloudy we will still see stars thanks to a brilliant computer based planetarium show.

The North York Moors National Park is an international dark sky reserve with low levels of light pollution. We advise you to wear sensible outdoor footwear and wrap up warm. Bring binoculars if you have them, although we will supply the telescopes!

Please note the Hub is not part of the main Sutton Bank visitor centre building, but located one hundred metres away at the north west corner of the complex. It has its own car park - just drive through the raised barrier. Look out for the red external lights on the Hub.
