Winterfest Astro Star Party - November 24th - 27th 2016

Welcome to the 2nd Winferfest Astro star party at Kelling Heath.

At Birmingham Astronomical Society we love the Kelling star parties held in the Spring and Autumn but felt that the skies could offer more in the deep dark of winter, thus Winterfest was born!

Staying warm

There is no such thing as bad weather just inappropriate clothing!

Many of you have been to the Spring and Autumn events and will know that when it can get cold. You're pretty much guaranteed to get very cold nights at Winterfest so make sure you prepare!

We suggest these are top on your list of things to bring (Apart from your astro gear!)

  • Thermals
  • Thick socks
  • Winter sleeping bags
  • Hats
  • Winter coats
  • Kettle with Tea / Coffee :-)
  • Fan heater (Most pitches have electric hookup)


Winterfest will be held at the well known Kelling Heath Touring and Caravan site in Norfolk, not far from Holt and Sherringham.

After dark no white white lights are to be used as this will ruin everones night vision red torches only please! Persistant offenders of the white light rule will be asked to leave.

Sources of white lights are:

  • Laptops and Televisions
  • Torches
  • Cars (Interior and exterior)


Loudness on the site disturbs everyone throughout the night, especially when it is cloudy. When it is clear, many will have a lie-in the next day so please bear this in mind when you're up after a clear night!

Anti social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour will NOT be tolerated towards the site staff or other visitors.
