Kielder Forest Starcamp

Kielder Forest Starcamp is based at Kielder Campsite and attracts experienced and novice astronomers from across the UK. They spend up to five nights camped under England's darkest sky. The event does not offer any formal instruction for beginners, but many observers are happy to share their views with others. People do their own thing and mingle and marvel under the sometimes clear night sky. The event is held in the darkest part of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park - the largest of its kind in Europe.

The next event is 2 - 6 March 2016 inclusive, for bookings please contact Lynn Henderson.

All you need to do is to follow our red light rules and enjoy a unique experience to the nearest thing we have to a wilderness south of the Border. Remember, places are limited at both our spring and autumn events so book early.
