Gorge lunar landings

It’s 50 years since man first walked on the moon. Over the centuries, the moon has been interpreted as a god and as a planet, been used as a timekeeper, calendar and to aid night-time navigation. It has inspired artists, poets, scientists, writers and musicians the world over.
Now moon fanatics can enjoy an immersive lunar experience at Enginuity when an enormous spherical sculpture created by artist Luke Jerram is installed at the museum from Monday 21 October to 10 November. Themed events will be held underneath the huge ‘moon’, which is 6m in diameter, including a special three-course moonlit dinner on Thursday 24 October, featuring a speaker from the Lunar Society.
Internally lit, the installation gives visitors a surreal up-close experience by fusing lunar imagery and moonlight with a surround sound composition by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winner Dan Jones.
