Held at Penmaenau Farm Builth
Wells Wales, this will be the third
Solarsphere since it's inception back in August 2015 and we
are please to say that the two previous events were a
success. As a team we endeavour to improve and build on each
event to deliver you a very entertaining, enjoyable and
informative few days.
What is Solarsphere:
Solarsphere is a festival that encompasses both Astronomy &
Music into one event, the aim is to introduce people both
old and young to the science of astronomy. This done by
providing talks by many eminent astronomers & scientists,
workshops for children in the scientific & arts field, many
other workshops and stalls with a general festival feel with
a backdrop of music supplied by some well known and up and
For the Astronomers:
There is an astronomers camping area called the "Red Torch"
Field" where experienced and newcomers alike can camp who
have brought astronomical equipment with them. This is a
dark sky field and has a great south looking aspect.
For The Novice:
As discussed above there will be talks & workshops for the
novice plus expert guidance if skies are clear by astronomers
that will conduct sessions into the Red Torch Field where
they will guide the novice through the night sky and
introduce them to astronomy.
What to Expect:
All camping is free (see site information) and all events
are held indoors including the food outlets. This will not
encroach on the night sky observing in the form of light
pollution. All talks and music events do not overlap giving
everyone the opportunity to see everything. All is inclusive
in the price of £45 except the planetarium which will charge
a small fee.
