The universe in a nutshell

Celebrating 10 years of the Galloway Dark Sky Park, our third annual Big Bang Weekend looks to the heavens this spring. Fun, friendly and accessible, 2019’s programme is inspired by humankind’s attempt to understand the cosmos - from the legacy of the Apollo moon landings to the new age of commercial space exploration and the current search for life on Mars. Join us beneath some of the darkest skies in Europe, as we boldly venture into a universe of ideas.
