Green Space Dark Skies invites you to join 20,000 people, from all paths in life, to experience beautiful landscapes across the UK at dusk, between April and September 2022. Anyone is welcome to sign up to this series of mass gatherings, which celebrate nature, our responsibility to protect it and everyone’s right to explore the countryside. Using low impact lights, we will create magical, memorable moments outdoors.
Commissioned by UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK, the ground breaking UK-wide celebration of creativity in 2022, this project is led by outdoor arts experts Walk the Plank.
We want you to carry a hand-held light and help us to create magical, memorable moments a series of once-in-a-lifetime events outdoors. There will be up to 20 different secret locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland where you can join in. It’s free to take part and everyone is welcome to sign up – in fact, we want you to tell us what you need in order to be involved.
Together, we will celebrate nature, show that the countryside belongs to all of us, and that it is our job to protect it.
Be part of something truly special. Millions will be able to watch online, but only those who’ve chosen to be involved will be there on the day.

I could write a book on all the amazing moments I had, but I think that a key to success in any such event is to ensure that you pick passionate participants.
Green Space Dark Skies will be carbon positive, ultimately removing more carbon from the atmosphere than it produces. The aim is to leave no trace, and to empower everyone involved to make a difference locally. In the face of the climate emergency, thousands of Lumenators will become caretakers of nature for the future.
The project is rooted in the countryside, and in celebrating our landscapes. It considers them as places worth protecting, for everyone, forever.
