As well as being a beautiful venue for events and conferencing, National Star's primary purpose is to provide residential and educational services to young people with complex disabilities and health conditions.
In order to continue to protect our students and residents, National Star currently plans that the general public will continue to not access our sites and facilities. We anticipate that this arrangement will apply for the whole of the academic year 2020-21 but will continue to review the situation.

Thank you for visiting our page and we hope to welcome you for an event once we are able to reopen.
