Fancy an action packed day out? Then the 'Star Party' is for you. This is your opportunity to discover the stars, meet scientists and enjoy stories from international storytellers about the myths and legends of the stars.

We're working with some out of this world partners to bring you this event. Scientists will be on hand from Manchester Metropolitan University & Bradford Astronomical Society and storytellers will delight and inspire you with the myths and legends of the stars.

We know that since time began people have been inspired by the wonders of the stars. So we couldn't leave anybody out at this event. Therefore we've put on over 10 events (many free) suitable for adults, children and families.
