Description

We have pleasure in once again collaborating with our friend and neighbour Jane Green for what promises to be an evening to remember. The evening will start with a festive welcome drink and short talk about Rathfinny's progress and development followed by a guided tasting of Cradle Valley 2016. Our Flint Barns team will then serve a 3 course set menu.

Jane, is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and is a natural, eloquent and captivating speaker who possesses that rare ability to communicate the complexities of astronomy in a warm and easy to understand way. She makes the ‘ungraspable’ graspable so why not join her for this revelatory voyage?

After dinner Jane will give a 50-minute talk, complimented with stunning audio visuals, celebrating astronomical perspective, grandeur and beauty on the most majestic of scales. With the annual Geminids meteor shower also promising an array of shooting stars, Jane will include these in her journey as she deconstructs the complex, de-mystifies meaningless phrases and uncloaks the darkest wonders of the cosmos to reveal the splendours of wondrous celestial light.

Also capitalising on Rathfinny Estate’s 360° panoramic views and deep dark skies, a stargazing session will follow completing what will be a powerful, insightful and indeed, possibly life-changing journey, one that will begin and end with ‘nothing’ … so what could possibly fill the ‘space’ in between? Join Jane to discover more.
