17th December: Living Landscape Event - Rhymney Brewery and Dark Sky WalesJanuary 18th 2022
Have you ever looked up at a dark sky and wondered what was out there and do you want a unique gift for Christmas with the proceeds used to reconnect people with and enhance nature? Here is your chance to find out at the next in the series of Living Landscape Lectures hosted by Torfaen CBC and jointly sponsored by WECAN and Rhymney Brewery.
Dark Sky Wales will be providing a fascinating talk about the night sky and their work in promoting sky watching here in Wales. This is an opportunity to learn more about what is fast becoming a growing tourism activity here in the Valleys and Wales as a whole. After the talk you can have a go at using the telescopes and experiencing the mobile planetarium.
This event will be taking place between 6-9pm at the iconic Rhymney Brewery Visitor Centre in Blaenavon. Enjoy the visitor centre and find out more about the history of this Valleys' company, before visiting their shop and sampling the ‘local produce’ at their friendly bar.
The branded gift pack in the photograph, which includes two Champion beers of Wales and an engraved glass, will be on sale for £10. All the proceeds from this limited edition stocking-filler will go towards supporting the Dark Sky Wales initiative and other projects linked to enhancing the natural environment in the south Wales valleys.
Entry to this event is FREE however booking is essential. To reserve your place please call the Blaenavon World Heritage Centre on 01495 742 333. Download the event poster.
