Changes Start with... THE SPARK "at the heart of the alternative west country"

WIN a five day family ticket to Starry Skies!



Starry Skies Family Camp takes place from July 23-27 on a beautiful site between the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains.


Starry Skies is all about providing a relaxing family camping experience in a beautiful setting, where kids and adults can reconnect to the great outdoors, kids can roam free, and adults can properly relax! The site encompasses a working farm, miles of rolling meadows, rivers and streams, ancient woodland, mountains and hills and lies in easy reach of the Gower peninsula, the Wye Valley and the Pembrokeshire coast. With a petite capacity of 250 families, Starry Skies encourages a neighbourly spirit and a friendly ‘around the campfire’ atmosphere amongst parents and children alike.


The programme of outdoor activities includes a forest school, wild walks, nature art, stargazing and woodland play. The centre camp, at the heart of the Starry Skies site, comprises an organic restaurant, a cinema, several workshop tents, a bookshop and the Giant Teepee with organized activities and live entertainment taking place throughout the day and into the evening. Adults can access a pampering area offering a range of therapies; workshops in yoga, tai chi and other meditative arts; a bar stocked with everything from real ale to posh cocktails and live entertainment programmed by the Shambala music team. Campers can even have fresh croissants, bread and papers delivered to their tents each morning!
