Kielder Observatory - Family Events

Kielder Water and Forest Park
Kielder
Northumberland
NE48 1ER

0191 265 5510

Our early evening events are aimed to be fun and interesting to everyone, including families with younger children and for these events we offer reduced family tickets for two adults and two children. We run the shorter Family Astronomy every Saturday afternoon, “Space Kids” in school holidays and our brand new programme of events called “Introduction to Astronomy” will now be running most days from 5pm until 7pm.

They cover concepts such as navigating the sky or telescope workshops. Recommended ages are six years old and upwards. The focus of these events is on education and introducing the basics of astronomy, but if the skies are clear we may get the chance to glimpse the moon, a planet or maybe the sun depending on the season. You will still get to see our fantastic telescopes up close and the team will be on hand to answer everyone’s questions.

Tickets must be booked in advance and we often sell out early, so please check our website for availability and to book: https://kielderobservatory.org/our-events
