The festival starts at 1500 on Friday 22nd of September and finishes at 1500 on Sunday 24th. We have astro workshops on both Friday and Saturday night, with lectures and workshops on Friday late afternoon, all Saturday and Sunday morning. We'll have a number of accompanied photo-walks over the weekend. The competition judging will be after lunch on Sunday.


Other than you camera gear, bring some warm clothing and footwear you don't mind getting dirty. We don't care if your camera is 50 years old and powered by steam, you'll still have a great time. If you are coming to the astro photography workshop then please bring a tripod, or alternatively bring a sand bag and infinite patience....

We are running a competition for photos taken over the weekend so if you are keen to participate then you may want to bring a way to edit and upload your photos.
