Dark Skies Festival
Foodie Events Calendar:
Every guest takes home a FREE Dark Skies Pocket Guide and can leave at any time during the eve. There may be some waiting around as we work with the clarity of the sky.
Accessibility: Barton Farm has concrete, Valley of Rocks is grass / tarmac road and Nettlecombe - gravel and grass. Walking distance is <30yds for all locations
What do I bring: Warm layers & warm boots - protect your neck, head and ankles from cold wind. Its a better experience
Do I need any former knowledge: No! Its all for beginners
Toilets: All sites have a disabled access toilet and single cubicle toilets
When do I arrive: At least 10 minutes prior, to find parking and to familiarise yourself
Who do I look out for: Signage and a tall blonde lady with a head torch
To ensure the best experience: we have a 28 days cancellation policy; if cloudy or rainy we still go ahead with our indoor stargazing Show; dietary requirements must be declared at least 8 days in advance, no dogs at Nettlecombe Court events, we do private events for up to 20 guests!
