The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is an ambitious annual programme led by An Lanntair, including live music, film, visual art, theatre, astronomy talks, and stargazing. Each February there are two weeks of events at An Lanntair and across the Isle of Lewis, exploring astronomy, darkness, and our night skies.
The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is supported by Caledonian MacBrayne, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Culture and Business Fund Scotland. We would also like to thank our event partners, Calanais Visitor Centre, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Gallan Head Community Trust, and Lews Castle College UHI , as well as Cala Hotels, Outer Hebrides Tourism, and VisitScotland.
Our festival trailer was created by Isle of Lewis film-maker John Macdonald, with music by Andrew Eaton-Lewis.
