Inspired by the North York Moors National Park’s Dark Skies Festival (http://www.darkskiesnationalparks.org.uk/north-york-moors-events/northyorkmoors/fancy-a-stargazing-party), we are delighted to host our very own Star Gazing Party. It has been a few years since we hosted our last star gazing event, but with the kind help of Mark Dawson from the Whitby & District Astronomical Society we thought it was time to revisit the sky with his expert help. Our boarding students will also be enlisted to help out with a scaled solar system demonstration before we start observing. Mark will then talk on what is visible, pointing out the brighter stars, constellations and objects of interest.

Our wonderful friends at The Baytown Coffee Company will be launching and serving their very special blend made to celebrate the Dark Skies festival. Expect dark, smooth and bold flavours to compliment your stargazing (and to help you stay awake…).

Limited places are available. Please contact Angelique on marketing@fylinghall.org for further details.

Here’s hoping for clear skies!!
