YOUR OWN PURPOSE-BUILT WINDOW ON THE UNIVERSE
This event is part of the second annual North Pennines Stargazing Festival running between 20 Oct-04 Nov 2018, during Half-Term. Organised by the North Pennines AONB Partnership and supported by: Durham County Council; Northumberland County Council and Visit County Durham, the 2018 Stargazing Festival will take advantage of the area's stunning dark skyscape with 30 events over the two weeks unlocking the wonders of the night sky. If you are an existing Supporting Members of North Pennines Observatory you can enjoy discounted ticket prices for some paid-for events during the festival.
Come along and experience Pink Floyd’s entire ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ album in the pop-up planetarium dome, with real-time visualisations and animations (not astronomy themed). A sound and light experience like no other! Shows will be starting at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.
You will have to sit on a wooden floor throughout the show (45 minutes), so please make sure this does not present any problems for you. You can bring a small cushion with you (anything bigger will not be allowed due to accessibility and the need to avoid trip hazards).
Please note that parking is very limited at the venue – leave your car in the Nenthead Mines car park and walk up the hill to the hall.
Booking: Pre-booking essential via Eventbrite
