Dark Skies Festival

We'd like to thank everyone who attended our 2018 festival 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).

During the year we'll be adding full details of events and booking arrangements on this page so do check back!

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.

Events will include Guided Night Walks, Family Astro party, Night Mountain Biking, Stargazing Talks, Wildlife at Night, Wild Swimming, Planetarium sessions and more!
