Penrhyn Castle Dark Skies Festival 2020
The night sky is one of the joys of a winter in Wales. This February half term we’ve teamed up with Snowdonia National Park to celebrate Snowdonia’s status as an International Dark Skies Reserve with four days of fun dark skies events and activities for all ages.
Over 4 days (and evenings) we’ll explore the night’s sky, learn about stars, constellations and planets, explore our traditions, cultural heritage and relationship with the night’s sky and find out how being a Dark Skies Reserve has a positive impact on our environment, nature and our lives.
Teaming up with Snowdonia National Park's Dark Skies team and Techniquest Glyndwr we'll bring the night's sky indoors, during daylight hours - thanks to a 5 meter, 360 degree projection planetarium - the StarDome
During the four days you will also have the opportunity to experience and celebrate other starry night activities including Dark Skies talks, evening stargazing walks, fireside star stories, nocturnal animal experiences, nature trails and visit the Grand Hall for special Zodiac Tours.
