Star Man Astronomy and Hamsterley Forest Tearooms

The Forestry Commission is a driving force behind the promotion of dark skies in Northumberland and Durham.

Here at Hamsterley we have some great events lined up and our skies are very dark so you might well learn new things and see things you've never seen before!

Enjoy an informal night of astronomy chat and stargazing with our resident astronomer, Simon Rowland FRAS (Star Man Astronomy). Nights are themed around a topic and Simon delivers an interactive presentation followed by stargazing, weather permitting. Hot drinks are provided by the tearooms and there is also a quiz with a bottle of fizz for the winners!

Events are aimed at the novice astronomer or anyone with an interest in astronomy. We aim to establish Hamsterley Forest as the "go-to" dark sky destination in County Durham so please come along to support us and see what it's all about.
