Selected as a finalist in the 2014 National Lottery Awards from over 900 projects, StarDisc is a visionary celestial amphitheatre which captures people’s hearts and imaginations. It is a free to use, public space, open to anyone and everyone 24 hours a day, all year round.

Since the 2011 unveiling in Wirksworth, Derbyshire Dales,  StarDisc has attracted tens of thousands of visitors and delivers wide ranging benefits to the local community. Events, performances and activities staged at StarDisc inspire and educate people from all walks of life and celebrate our place amongst the stars.

The StarDisc Trust charity now aspires to establish The StarDisc Array; an earthbound constellation of StarDiscs across the United Kingdom, replicating the success of the inaugural StarDisc.

The StarDisc Array will deliver significant social, economic and community benefits through an ethos of inclusion, diversity, creativity and cohesion. The StarDisc Array is a torch bearer for the union of art, science, spirituality and community - it will endure both physically and through its civic value for generations to come.

With your support we will be enabled to embark on an exploratory nationwide venture, journeying to meet with communities to talk about our unique vision, and work together to develop their own StarDiscs.

For £15 you will receive a mounted photograph of StarDisc taken by respected regional photographers, hand signed by the creator, Aidan Shingler.

Choose from one of the 5 prints below and tell us whether you would like either a black or a silver mount, evoking the black and silver granite used to construct StarDisc (final print and mount is A4 size).
