9th Summer Star Festival, 2009

Friday August 21st to Monday August 24th (Three nights observing)

Adderstone Field, Dalby Forest, in the North York Moors National Park

We invite you to come and join us for three nights observing in an elevated dark site within the stunning Dalby Forest on the foothills of the North York Moors. Our site is within easy reach of Pickering, with its steam railway, and the seaside resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. There are many beautiful walks in the area, both within the forest itself and further afield. This area is well known for its many and varied attractions.

There is a large and well-drained field for camping, (tents and caravans) with portable toilets.

The cost for the weekend will be

£18 per adult, (adults start at 16); 11-15 year olds £10;
5-10 yr olds £5, with under fives free.

This year we are offering the facilty for attendees to camp on the Thursday evening for an additional cost of £5. Entry to the site on the Thursday will be allowed after 5pm.

There is a limit to the number of guests we can accommodate, so book early and avoid disappointment!

This fee includes a forest pass to enable you to take advantage of the forest facilities, as well as a 'wine and nibbles' get-together on the Friday evening to welcome you to Dalby Forest. Please book ahead so that you can receive your pass - otherwise you may be asked to pay the toll as you enter the forest.

Again we will hold one of our team 'Astromind' competitions in the communal marquee and speakers will be organised for various times during the event if there is anyone amongst you who would like to volunteer to talk or demonstrate at other times, we would love to hear from you!

A number of trade stands will be on site during Starfest.

We look forward to meeting all our old friends and new ones too!

Best Wishes,
Mell and Sheila and the rest of the members of SARAS

We do need you to book - the number of toilets ordered is directly proportional to the number of guests!
