The Exmoor Dark Skies Festival

Exmoor Celebrates l0 years as International Dark Sky Reserve
It was ten years ago that Exmoor’s uniquely dark skies were
formally recognised by the International Dark Sky Association
and the National Park became Europe’s first International Dark
Sky Reserve. Recent research by CPRE, the countryside charity,
demonstrates that today, 92% of Exmoor has pristine night
skies, free from light pollution, and even the remaining areas
have incredibly dark skies.

Marlborough Dark Skies Fest

The Box Office is open for the first Marlborough Dark Skies Fest - a fun festival of events running from the 25 October and culminating in a jam-packed programme on the weekend of the 30/31 October of science and art activities celebrating the night sky.
With over 40 events taking place in 13 venues across the town the festival has lots to offer everyone, from exhibitions to workshops, talks to tours and – of course – stargazing! Most events are free but ticketed and tickets are limited so please don’t leave it to the last minute!
