The festival starts at 2pm on Friday 5th of October and finishes at 3pm on Sunday 7th. 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.

For more detail from last years event click on the "SCHEDULE" button above. We will have our schedule for 2018 finalised in September this year. Expect all the goodness from last year but with more choice, more speakers, more workshops and more beer. 


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....
