Killhope Lead Mining Museum
Lie back in your deck chair and enjoy the show! Kicking off with folk music, and kids activities (including rocket launching) the evening will build up to the main event with projected astronomical images, drop-in space-themed activities and much, much more. From ten onwards the Perseid Meteor Shower should result in 60 to 70 shooting stars per hour.
Join us at Killhope Museum (DL13 1ATR) for this special ‘launch pad’ event for the North Pennines Stargazing Festival – to whet your appetite for the autumn festival running 20 October to 4 November (www.NorthPenninesStarFest.org.uk).
Food and drink will be available. Some deck chairs will be on hand on the night but if you have your own bring it along! Wrap up warm and bring a blanket and red torches (if you have them).
Booking: Pre-booking essential. Call Killhope Museum on 01388 537505.
Cost: Adults – £4; Concessions/children – £2
