The South Downs National Park is holding a Dark Skies Festival to celebrate its recent IDA accreditation. In conjunction with SDNP and Eastbourne Borough Council (Redoubt Fortress) we are hosting a companion event.

Dark Skies Festival

Free Public Observing at the Redoubt Napoleonic Fortress on Eastbourne Seafront.

Observing will be on the Gun Platform with members of the Eastbourne Astronomical Society through various society telescopes. Astronomical presentations will also be available in a downstairs Casement (especially in the case of rain!) and coffees and teas may be available from the Redoubt or Pavilion Cafe.

Anyone can bring along a telescope if help is required to make best use of it.

Members are welcomed to come along and bring their own telescopes.

Enter from the main road over the drawbridge!
