Remember to wrap up warm as you explore the wonders of the night sky through one of Derby and District Astronomical Society’s telescopes! Come take a star walk led by Beyond the Pencil, who bring science, arts and creativity together. Listen to starry stories, create some astronomy-themed crafts or watch the illuminated model Alvaston Pirate Boats on the lake plus much more!
