Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

Running from 9-12 March 2022, Big Bang is our festival of space and science, which responds to the beauty of Galloway’s unspoilt night sky and the fact that Scotland’s National Book Town sits on the edge of the UK’s first International Dark Sky Park.With most of this talks in 2022 online and free (with suggested donation), you can truly explore the universe from your armchair. Among the events: International Space Station astronaut Nicole Stott talks about coming back to Earth and her passion to preserve the planet. Folklorist Chris Pinard considers how our Celtic forebears understood the heavens, Sky at Night presenter Chris Lintott asks: “Are we alone?” On 12 March there is a series of live children's events running at Moat Brae in Dumfries.
