Have you ever wanted to go on a Dark Sky event but felt put off because of the walk length or big hills? Or wished you could take your kids, but been unable to? Well, here's your chance to have a go. 

We're very excited about these experiences. Run in partnership with High Dalby House - a fabulous boutique retreat - you're in for a real treat. And the location couldn't be more perfect. Set in the middle of Dalby Forest, it's been confirmed it's the darkest place in North York Moors. High Dalby House even has its own observatory!

But first, there'll be warming drinks and delicious hot food all prepared by our wonderful hosts, Ian and Linda, from High Dalby House. 

Afterwards, we'll take you on a short, sensory night- time walk. Why? Because it's fun! Walking at night is such an incredible thing to do because it makes you feel amazing and enhances your experience. You'll essentially see and hear so much more. Teens will love it too! 

This will be followed by our wonderful astronomer, Fred, who will point out a few things in the night sky. You'll be able to look at celestial objects through telescopes as well. But if it's a cloudy evening he's got a few things lined up indoors, so you'll still learn lots and be amazed. 

At the end of this experience, you'll feel-good factor will be ramped up too!
