14th February to 1st March 2020

Since 2016’s inaugural event, the Festival has become an unmissable fixture in the calendar, with the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Park Authorities celebrating the jewels of the night sky. We go further in 2020 with activity themed around exploration. With over 100 events, join us on a nebula adventure to explore the cosmos for the fifth Dark Skies Festival.

One of the events(The Swaledale Night Sky) is a short walk from Billy Gills cottage or the Shepherds hut.
