Dark Skies, Pop Up Planetarium

by | Jun 7, 2024 | Events | 0 comments

What amazing night skies we’ve witnessed recently but how much do you know about what is above us?  Did you know that the Brecon Beacons National Park is a Dark Sky reserve and what does that mean?

We are delighted that Dark Sky Wales is bringing their pop-up planetarium to Yr Hen Farchnad on 29th June to teach us more about the night sky above. You’ll fly to planets, follow the Milky Way and learn why we need to protect our precious dark skies. To book your time slot please click on the following link (30max)
