It is that time of year again and we are now focusing all our attentions onto Dark Skies 2020 which are planned for the 14th February to the 1st March 2020. As you are aware we host the Dark Skies Festival each year with our colleagues in various National Parks around the country and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and as you will be aware each year we like to have a different theme and this year we have decided that we should be focusing on selling the benefits of our dark skies – in particular the benefits of “darkness” to humans.
