The Dark Skies festival will celebrate the night sky with almost a week of science and art-based activities.
With over 40 events taking place in 13 venues across the town, the festival has lots to offer, including exhibitions to workshops, talks to tours and stargazing.
Most of the festival is free but there will be some ticketed events, and tickets are limited. The Dark Skies team encourage people to act sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

One of the highlights of this year's festival line up will be Luke Jerram's 'Museum of the Moon' installation.
Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.
The Marlborough Dark Skies Fest team say they are delighted to bring this spectacular installation to Marlborough. The Museum of the Moon will be free to visit at the Chapel of St Michael and All Angels at Marlborough College all week and throughout the weekend in bookable timed entry slots from 25 - 31 October.
