Fortunes could be waiting in the stars

Fortunes could be waiting in the stars

With the nights drawing in, tourism businesses are being urged to act now to take advantage of the North East's pristine starry skies, which can be seen to advantage from mid-August through to spring.

Astro-tourism is a rapidly expanding sector for local accommodation providers, many who have reported increasing numbers of visitors flocking to the region to enjoy stargazing breaks. 

Now more Stars for Profit training workshops have now been announced to help businesses take advantage of the stargazing surge. The sessions are part of the ground-breaking Animating Dark Skies Partnership, funded by DEFRA through the Northern Lands programme, to help develop the stargazing tourism sector.
