‘Gaze & Graze’ at The Farmhouse
Luxury stargazing at The Farmhouse (Moon Event)
Friday 12th April
The Farmhouse is blessed with beautiful night skies and we are delighted to offer our ‘Gaze & Graze’ evening combining a sumptuous dinner from our barn with an evening with your very own expert astronomer, Richard Darn.
During this event you will get to study our nearest celestial neighbour in all its glory. The moon will be in the ideal position and phase to view incredible mountains ranges and deep craters. Learn about this alien world which welcomed the first humans aboard Apollo 11 a half century ago. We’ll have telescopes at the ready and encourage you to take a picture using your smartphone (see image above for example) and go on a tour of the spring sky. Plus there’ll be a colourful interactive talk and a chance to handle space rocks over four billion years old!
