BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS! ASTRO DOG NOW RUNNING ALL DALBY COURTYARD STARGAZING! ASTRO-DOG.CO.UK IS NOW LIVE! BOOKINGS FOR EVENTS AVAILABLE!
As some of you will know, this time last year, we began a new adventure with a local business called Hidden Horizons and what an incredible year we’ve had! It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with team HH and we’ve learnt so much along the way. We are really thankful for everything we’ve experienced in this first year, it’s been nothing short of spectacular! Whilst we were quite daunted and apprehensive at first, we found delivering stargazing sessions to be an amazing and rewarding experience.
After one year of running events on behalf of Hidden Horizons and celebrating the one year anniversary of setting up Astro Dog we had a meeting with our friend Will, owner of Hidden Horizons. Following this meeting we came away with a big announcement, one of which we would like to share with you now.
TAKING ON DALBY COURTYARD STARGAZING SESSIONS
We are very excited to announce that we will be taking on the stargazing events from Hidden Horizons and will be running all future stargazing events under the name 'Astro Dog'. We are now fully responsible for all of the stargazing events run from the Dalby Forest Courtyard and are thrilled that we’ve been given this opportunity. We have so many exciting ideas moving forward with Astro dog for the future.
AN EXCITING NEW LOCAL BUSINESS
We've been extremely busy behind the scenes preparing Astro Dog to become a fully fledged business ahead of the new stargazing season. Registering the business, attending lots of business meetings, setting up the permissions and lease for our stargazing hub in Dalby Forest, networking, and organising a whole load of things including the creation of OUR OWN WEBSITE!

It’s truly exciting times for us at Astro Dog with us starting up stargazing events again, starting our own business, plus launching our own website! It’s very daunting being a new start-up business and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind setting up, but we can’t wait to get back to being under the dark skies of Dalby and sharing lots of wonderful moments with our guests who visit us there.
We’ve got lots more plans for Astro Dog and our website, and are excited to see what the future will hold.
We would like to say a huge heart felt thank you to each and every one of you for everyone who’s supported our journey so far. For each like, each follow, each tag, each share, each review and for all of you who have helped out with and attended stargazing events, words cannot explain how much we appreciate your support! We wouldn’t be where we are without you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
A special thank you to Hidden Horizons for giving us the opportunity and platform to share our love of astronomy and astrophotography, plus all of the amazing opportunities that have come along with it. A special thank you also to Dalby Forest - Forestry England and North York Moors National Park and Go Stargazing for all of their help, support and for allowing us to run our stargazing events in such an idyllic stargazing location.
We are super excited about our business and website launch, and would love you to take a look at our new website. Let us know what you think and if you have the time we would really appreciate you spreading the word and sharing this post! Thank you all once more, we look forward to seeing many of you amazing people at our stargazing events.
