The Colne Valley Park, in association with The West of London Astronomical society (WOLAS), are hosting a special star gazing event on Feb 16th 6 - 8pm, to coincide with the BBC’s annual Stargazing Live. 

All are welcome to this free event, which, if skies are clear, will allow sights of The Seven Sisters, the Andromeda galaxy (2.5 million light years away!), the Orion Nebula, birthplace of stars, double stars and, if we are lucky, the planet Uranus! Plus…other wonders of the night sky...

In the event of adverse weather and/or cloudy skies, stargazing related activities will take place in the Visitor Centre. 

Please wrap up warm, and bring a torch (please limit to the brightness of your phone, or equivalent, to avoid dazzling other visitors). The Colne Valley Cafe will be open in the Visitor Centre, serving hot and cold drinks, as well as snacks. Please note that no hot food will available. Toilets are available, including disabled and baby change facilities. Free parking is available.
