Dark Skies Festival

The 2018 festival has now finished. We'd like to thank everyone who attended events and hope to see you all again in 2019.

The Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2019 will run from 14th October (when there is a full moon) until Sunday 3rd November. (These dates also incorporate the staggered half terms for Devon and Somerset).

There will be plenty of events taking place at venues all over Exmoor, from stargazing talks and sessions to night time adventures so we look forward to welcoming you to enjoy some of the darkest skies in the country.

If you're interested in running an event during the 2019 festival or just knowing more about it, please contact Katrina Munro on 01398 322236 or email
