Join us for a night with the winter stars. Our astronomy experts will take you on a whistle stop tour of the universe on the big screen. You will learn about stars, planets and galaxies and our place in the universe. Then we will head outside and use telescopes and binoculars to go in search of sparkling star clusters, distant galaxies and some giant planets. The content of this evening is best suited to adults and children over 12 years old.
Please note if the weather is poor or cloudy the event will still go ahead. Our astronomers will instead take more time to take you on a virtual tour of the universe on the screen!

A roaring fire, a house decked with greenery, a wintery walk with views of snow topped fells. Take a moment this Christmas to slow down and appreciate the simple things at Allan Bank with lots of festive fun for everyone.
