Isle Of Wight

Star Party

15th March - 19th March 2018

Come and Enjoy Some of the Darkest Skies in the South

Thursday 15th March to Monday 19th March 2018

Update - 2nd March

It’s with a lot of regret that we announce that there will be no Isle of Wight Star Party this year.

Things have conspired against us.

Knowing that we are a very serious wake up call for the Holiday Centre, we’ve left it as late as possible and decided that unfortunately we should cancel for this year.

Update - 23rd February

Really getting difficult now as time is obviously short.

Have had emails and messages with the new Land Manager and the latest is “All in hand. Be in contact next few days. Sorry for delay.”

We are playing a waiting game!

Update - 9th February

Everything going ahead as expected.  Have met the new owners and things are looking good.

Will get final confirmation from them that we are good to go, and will then send out forms etc.  More indoor accommodation available this year - please email us if you want adding to the list!

Update - 4th February 2018

Site is still in the process of being sold - we are awaiting contact with the new owners before proceeding with bookings - if you’re interesting in coming along please email us and we’ll add you to the list!

Update - 15th January 2018

Slightly complicated situation.  Brighstone Holiday Centre is in the process of being sold.  This should happen in the next few weeks and although we’ve just had confirmation that the new owners will honour all existing bookings we are still unsure of exactly how this will work.

We are alway the “wake up call” for the year so things are interesting.

No bookings have yet been taken for 2018.

Again, as always we expect to have a fantastic group coming along, some new faces, as well as a lot of regulars.

If you are interested in attending please, let us know and we will do our best to help - we are making a list so that we can act fast when things start happening, and expect to have more accommodation this year, as the site is being sold with vacant possession.

knowledge and equipment with others, but do please ask first and

don’t outstay your welcome ;-).
