This event will begin at Mill 3 Exhibition Gallery, with a family-friendly astronomy talk that will open your eyes to the starscape above and give you an insight to the evening ahead.

Following the talk, you can take part in cosmic craft activities, including a chance to create your own telescope with real lenses. The event will then move up to our rooftop garden where telescopes will be provided for observing the skies and stars*.

Join in the games, quizzes and enjoy New Lanark’s pop-up café selling tea, coffee, cakes and child friendly snacks. The Mill Café will be open late selling early dinner to heat you up before the event commences.

Sessions will be booked on a first-come, first served basis. Please arrive 10 minutes before your session starts. Each session will last approximately 2 hours.
* Groups of 10 per telescope. Visitors are welcome to bring their own telescopes. The sky clarity is weather dependent. Children must be supervised at all times.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Family Stargazing are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
