A SERIES of summer stargazing events at The Twice Brewed Inn are promising to be out of this world.

On the evenings of August 11, 12 and 13, stargazers who book their place at the popular pub’s observatory will be treated to a shower of shooting stars.

The Perseid Meteor Shower offers the chance to see up to 80 shooting stars every hour during its peak.

Resident astronomer Wil Cheung said: “The Perseid Meteor Shower is one of the prolific shooting star events of the year.

“At a dark sky location, like the one we’re lucky enough to have at The Twice Brewed, during the peak, we can expect to see up to 120 shooting stars per hour, which is really a sight to behold.

“The Perseids are one of my favourite events to observe, streaks of light randomly appear radiating from the Perseus constellation. I call it nature’s free fireworks display, sometimes two or even three appear at once – it’s just stunning.”

As well as the special Perseids evenings, The Twice Brewed – which was recently named North East Rural Pub of the Year in the Countryside Alliance awards – is also offering a full summer programme of stargazing.
