Telescopes at the ready for a night of stargazing at one of Northumberland’s best-loved Victorian visitor attractions.

A stargazing Moon Night will be held at the National Trust’s Cragside, near Rothbury, as darkness falls on Saturday.

Visitors will be invited to gaze into the night sky to discover all things lunar with experts on hand to give a colourful talk, and those who book in advance the chance to handle space rocks billions of years old.

Soup and hot drink is included, as well as the chance to use powerful telescopes.

The event is suitable for children aged six and over and participants are advised to wrap up in warm clothes, and to bring binoculours, camp chairs and blankets.

The event will run on Saturday, February 1, from 6pm until 8pm.
