Dark Sky Festival Weekend - Stargazing at Grizedale

Starry sky at Gisburn Forest HubWe will try and show some of the skies wonders through our powerful telescopes and binoculars.These are all operated by local astronomers, who will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!

We'll tell you more about our dark skies and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate we'll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
