Women in Dark Skies

    Join us for the second episode in our "Women in Dark Skies" series.

    We are delighted to welcome Dani Robertson, Dark Sky Officer from Snowdonia Dark Sky Reserve. You may have seen Dani recently on the BBC's Countryfile programme giving a wonderful explanation of Dark Sky Lighting for rural areas. Dani is a leading advocate for protecting our dark skies and really looking forward to hearing from her on this special theme of "Celtic Heritage and the Stars". Our two nations have lots in common and we can learn much about our own Celtic connections with the sky.

    Join us on Monday 4th April at 7pm. Please register in advance (free to join).
