For Adults and children of any age and experience looking to discover more about nocturnal wilderness and the night sky. Families with younger children are welcome to leave earlier than the official finish.

The Sharpham Estate beside the River Dart hosts various bats and moths, while the streetlamp-free dark skies are perfect for stargazing on a clear night.

You’ll also be able to visit a moth trap provided by the Devon Moth Group to see close-up how beautiful and diverse moths are, and discover more about their fascinating life-styles.

This packed event also includes – clouds permitting! – a tour of the night-sky, thanks to Dartmoor Skies. If it is cloudy, there will be a short introduction to astronomy with lots of hints and tips so that you can explore the sky for yourselves when you get home.
