Astronomy Nights

Mon, 16th Mar 2020 - Mon, 5th Oct 2020

7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Creswell Crags, Worksop United Kingdom (UK)


See the stars like never before, with expert astronomer, Paul Money.

Join Paul for an insightful talk about the night’s sky, before heading out into the evening, to look through telescopes at the constellations (weather permitting – the event will still go ahead in cloudy weather but the possibilities for stargazing will obviously be reduced).

All equipment is provided, tea and coffee will also be provided on arrival. Remember to dress warm and sensibly – you will be outdoors for some of the event. Sensible footwear is important – the paths can be muddy. The talk will take place in the Visitor Centre, which is fully accessible. The outside space is accessed via level paths but these might not be suitable for all access needs.
Booking essential – book via Eventbrite. If you have any problems booking via Eventbrite, please call 01909 720378 and our team will be happy to help.
Arrive at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start. There is a car park at the Visitor Centre and parking fees are waived for special events.
£10 per person. The event is suitable for adults, teenagers, and older children if they have a special interest in astronomy.

This event always sells out! Book today!

7:30pm start, with refreshments (tea, coffee, juice and biscuits) available from 7.15pm.

£10 per person. We don’t recommend this event for younger children, unless they have a special interest in bats and wildlife.

Sensible clothing and footwear required, as you will be outdoors for a lot of the event. The Visitor Centre, where the tour will take place, is fully accessible. The night will include a walk into the gorge, which is on wide, level footpaths. It can be muddy.
Bookings are via Eventbrite only at this stage – some tickets may be released for sale in the visitor centre closer to the date, but we cannot guarantee this will happen as it will depend on availability. If booking via Eventbrite is a problem, please call 01909 720378, and our team will be happy to help.

Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles - Chapterhouse Theatre Company

Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles – Chapterhouse Theatre Company

Sat, 22nd Aug 2020

5:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Creswell Crags, Worksop United Kingdom (UK)

Chapterhouse Theatre and Creswell Crags present an open air performance of…
Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles

Somewhere out in the desolate moors of Devon, something evil is afoot. As death stalks the wealthy Baskerville family, talk of a centuries-old curse sends the family into panic when Sherlock Holmes arrives to investigate. The enormous pawprints of a hound are discovered near the recently deceased body of Sir Charles Baskerville, whose face bears the expression of abject horror. But could tales of a gigantic, supernatural hound be anything other than local superstition? Join Chapterhouse as Laura Turner’s adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel returns to the open-air stage for an evening of shock and suspense…

Doors open from 5:30, performance starts at 7pm

Please bring your own rugs or low backed seating. Picnics welcomed. Refreshments will be available from our café before the performance.
The performance area is grassy, but level, and is accessible.
