The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is an ambitious annual programme of events at An Lanntair and across Lewis, including live music, film, visual art, theatre, astronomy talks, and stargazing.
The festival will return for its third year from Friday 5 February to Thursday 18 February. The two-week programme is set to include an exhibition by astronomy-inspired artist collective Lumen; music by Kathryn Joseph and Renzo Spiteri; talks by award-winning TV presenter Dallas Campbell and renowned climate scientist Tamsin Edwards; and lots more to be announced.
The festival will be a key event in An Lanntair’s winter programme, as we continue to welcome back local audiences and winter visitors.
The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Outer Hebrides Leader 2014-2020 programme, as well as new funding from Caledonian MacBrayne. We would also like to thank our event partners, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Calanais Visitor Centre, Gallan Head Community Trust, and Lews Castle College UHI.
