  • A relaxed and entertaining stroll through our sky. You helped explain the incomprehensible sizes and distances hanging over us as pinpricks. Lovely hosts. Thanks
  • Loved it! We had a large group and were treated to a BBQ and then we laid back in comfortable chairs, under the stars, whilst we were given a lesson in astronomy. Wonderful! ☺️
