Have you ever wanted to go on a Dark Sky event but felt put off because of the walk length or big hills? Or wished you could take your kids, but been unable to? Well, here's your chance to have a go.

We're very excited about these experiences. Run in partnership with Adventures for the Soul, High Dalby House - a fabulous boutique retreat, and Richard Darn - an entertaining, professional astronomer - you're in for a real treat. 

And the location couldn't be more perfect. Set in the middle of Dalby Forest, it's been confirmed it's the darkest place in North York Moors. High Dalby House even has its own observatory!

But first, there'll be hot drinks, barbecued burgers and hot dogs, plus pizza from a wood burning oven. All prepared by our wonderful hosts, Ian and Linda, from High Dalby House. 
Afterwards, we'll take you on a short, sensory saunter that'll fine tune your senses. Why? Because it helps you to see and hear so much more and you'll get more out of the experience. Children will love it too! You may even feel a bit awe-struck and forget about your problems for a while. 

This will the be followed by the master himself, Richard Darn. If you've never been on one of his events before, be prepared to be amazed! 

At the end of the evening, not only will you have learnt lots, you'll feel-good factor will be ramped up too!
