About the event

EXMOOR DARK SKIES FESTIVAL: 18th October to 3rd November 2024

We are delighted to be hosting an event, one among many, as part of this popular and well-established festival that attracts visitors from all over the country - many coming to experience a night gazing up at the thousands of stars and planets in our inky black Exmoor sky.

On Saturday 26th October Dani Robertson, a Dark Sky Officer for Snowdonia National Park will be joining the Seven Fables Walking Book Club to discuss her book, All Through the Night: Why Our Lives Depend on Dark Skies.

As a society we have closed our curtains to the darkness, now Dani urges you to cast those curtains wide, step out of your front door and let the darkness pull you in.

99% of Western Europeans live under light polluted skies, but what is this doing to our health? Our wellbeing? Our connection to the cycles of nature? Our wildlife, too, has been cast into the harsh glare of our light addiction, with devastating impacts. Discover Why darkness is so important - to plants, to animals, and to ourselves – and why we must protect it all costs.

'Discreet, glowing insights throw gentle but piercing light onto what we are doing to what Dani Roberston calls one of the most endangered landscapes on Earth – the night sky.' Mary Colwell, author of Curlew Moon

‘An utterly illuminating book that will open your eyes to an overlooked world in deep peril. Dani makes a compelling case for just how urgently we need to reform our relationship with darkness. Everyone interested in nature will find surprise, intrigue and awe on every page.’ Nicholas Gates, co-author of Orchard: A Year in England’s Eden

A level of walking fitness is required, please dress appropriately, and do bring a blanket or cushion to sit on - we walk in all weathers.

We look forward to walking with you in October...
