SOLARSPHERE is a brand new event combining the science of astronomy with the back drop of a “music festival”.
(please note: The music and catering are indoors therefore will not create a light pollution issue)

There will be an opportunity for beginners and the more experienced amateur to learn about a variety of space related topics at the astrocamp which consists of a dark site in a spectacular location in Mid Wales.

This will be in the form of talks and workshops to include solar observing and photography, night sky observing, astro photography, moon landing debate and much more. In addition, there will be a music festival running alongside this for those who wish to discover some wonderful new bands.

The ticket price is £45 for the weekend, this includes all talks, workshops, observing and Music. There are limited spaces at this venue so we advise you to book your tickets soon.

Camping is “FREE” whether you bring a tent, caravan or campervan. The top field is the best location for observing. If you wish to pitch your tent here you will need to get there early! For site information and location please follow the links at the top of this page.
