In collaboration with Exmoor National Park we have got together with Bruce and Claire at the Exford Bridge Tearooms so we can cater for larger groups, stargazing parties and corporate events.
Dark Skies Discovery Hub Winter events
From October the Hub will be offering their winter stargazing evening menu, this will be a 3 course home cooked supper to warm you up ready for a splendid evening’s stargazing in the centre of Exmoor’s Dark Skies Area.
You will be welcomed to your table with homemade soup and a roll, mulled wine or cider will be available or something from the fully licenced bar.
Main course will be a hearty supper dish such as shepherd’s pie, lasagne or sausage and mash with proper local butchers sausages.
Enjoy a hot dessert with the comfort of the woodburner whilst we start the planetarium presentation to guide you around the constellations and deep sky objects above our heads, regardless of the weather!
We will head outside to use our telescopes and chat about available apps on iphone, android and tablets. You can then join us on an optional walk out into the dark Skies area, this is a nominal extra £5 per person and can be as long or short as you wish, as it is an up and back. We will sit and enjoy the night sky so do bring warm clothes, hats and gloves if you are to enjoy the evening to the full.
Tickets are priced at £35 per adult, £15 for under 16years.Booked in advance please, on email@example.com
£5 for the optional walk, to pay on the night
Dark Skies Festival evenings with availability are Tuesday October 26th, Tuesday November 2nd and Saturday November 6th
Thereafter we will run every Thursday evening at 6.00pm until the end of March, 2022, the start of British Summer time, when we will start at 7.00pm.
This is suitable for all ages and a good option if you are less keen on walking, or the weather is not good!
Also if you are a smaller number or on your own you can join in with others for a sociable evening.
Otherwise please make contact and we can chat about any sort of starry event that you can dream up! We have 3 telescopes, a laser pointer for constellations, binoculars and loads of information about local stargazing. Endless enthusiasm plus the tearooms are fully licenced and happy to cater for your “Do”, from cream teas through barbecues to a “just desserts” evening. Once the evenings draw in we can head out for a spot of stargazing or a night hike as well.
