Work on Kielder Campsite

About £25,000 is now being spent on the campsite investigating the drainage, building a new warm room and creating about eight new hard standings ready for the Spring event.

Dark sky friendly lighting is also going to be installed on the toilet block so you can come when events are not on to enjoy the starry sky.

DID YOU KNOW? Kielder Starcamp takes place in Europe’s biggest International Dark Sky Park?

What is more – we are located in the starriest part of the preserve, where light meter readings touch 21.7.

So it’s worth stressing that all that is available now is tent pitches with no electric hook-up.

For the main day (Saturday), Richard Darn is sorting out vendors and lectures and more information will be provided ion due course.
