Astronomy Photographer of the Year

Among the awe-inspiring shortlisted entries for this year’s competition are pics of psychedelic auroras, spine-tingling meteor showers and the centre of the Heart Nebula. The last example is a star-clustered region of glowing gas in the Cassiopeia constellation – in case you didn’t already know. The free exhibition features remarkable photos from a record number of submissions, showcasing remarkable feats of astrophotography for a sixth year. It’s a chance to see magical views of both our own night sky and of galaxies far, far away. The winning spacey visions come from dozens of professional and amateur snappers in four categories: ‘Earth and Space’, ‘Our Solar System’, ‘Deep Space’ and ‘Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year’ for under-16s.

Visitors will be ferried around the gardens in rickshaw-inspired contraptions, able to create their own spice and to learn about the medicinal power of cloves. Spiced delicacies will also be available from street food vans, a pop-up bread kitchen and in the garden's Orangery and Pavilion restaurants.
