Sky at Night presenter Chris Lintott will be among the headline acts at the second Hebridean Dark Skies Festival next year.

The popular event will bring two weeks of arts and astronomy events to the Isle of Lewis. The 2020 festival will run from February 7-22, with an ambitious programme spanning theatre, live music, film, visual art, food, astronomy talks, and stargazing.

Other headliners will be singer-songwriter Karine Polwart and arts and astronomy project Creativity and Curiosity.

A Day of Creativity and Curiosity will include Chris Lintott and jazz musician Steve Pretty comparing notes on the cosmos.

Karine Polwart will be in conversation with astronomers, a ‘visual moonbounce’ event will take place with media artist and trained radio telescope operator Daniela de Paulis.

There will also be Scotland’s Astronomer Royal John Brown and visual artist Kate Bernstein.

Festival programmer Andrew Eaton-Lewis said: “We were very encouraged by the hugely positive response to our first festival and will be working hard to build on that success in 2020.”

Tickets can be booked via An Lanntair‘s box office on 01851 708480.
