Festival, Fri 9 - Mon 12 Aug 2019, £20-£50




SOLARSPHERE 2019 combines the science of astronomy with the back drop of a "music festival".
Location: Penmaenau Farm, Builth Wells LD2 3RD

Solarsphere is the opportunity for beginners and the more experienced amateur to learn about a variety of space related topics at the astrocamp which consists of a dark site in a spectacular location in Mid Wales.

The festival includes talks and workshops to include solar observing and photography, night sky observing, astro photography and a music festival running alongside this for those who wish to discover some wonderful new and established bands.

The first night at Solarsphere is a ‘let your hair down’ fun fancy dress night!!! (fancy dress is optional of course but the more the merrier)!!

Dress up as your favourite SciFi character or favourite music hero and party the night away to the live music with fellow festival goers!

There will be small prizes to be won for the best fancy dress. The party starts at 19:30 when the evening live music begins and the fancy dress winners (one adult / one child) will be chosen before the headline band starts.

The ticket price is £45 for the weekend, this includes all talks, workshops, observing and Music. There are limited spaces at this venue so we advise you to book your tickets soon.

Beginners & experienced astronomers with telescopes please bring them if possible, there will be a telescope for Deep Sky and Solar for beginners without telescopes to look through if required.
