Dark Skies Festival 2020

February 14 - March 1

From 14 February to 1 March 2020 we will be celebrating our fifth Dark Skies Festival.

Did you know we have some of the darkest skies in the UK here in the Yorkshire Dales? Isn’t that amazing!

Join us this February to help us celebrate the night skies of the Yorkshire Dales through a range of events across the Park. We want to continue to inspire people and encourage them to look after the incredible night skies and landscapes.

This year the theme is the benefits of dark skies, in particular to humans, and focusing on the experience of being here, in the countryside, and finding tranquility, remoteness and solitude.

Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for a star-tastic line-up of events and discover the wonders that come with getting outside after dark. ✨
