Stargazers are being invited on a night-time adventure with nocturnal creatures at a dark skies event in north Norfolk.

How Hill National Nature Reserve, near Ludham, is one of the darkest areas in the Broads National Park and organisers say it will provide the perfect setting for an unadulterated view of the stars.

Jon Tyler, of Wild for Woods, will be leading the event, on Saturday, March 30, and Nick Sanderson, education officer for the Broads Authority, said: “It’s going to be amazing fun for all of the family and a great way to engage with the natural environment at night in all of its starry, nocturnal glory.”

The event runs from 7pm to 9pm and the party should meet in the main public car park at How Hill. The adventure is suitable for children aged seven and over, accompanied by an adult.
