A brand new festival celebrating humanity’s relationship with the moon
What is it?
A festival dedicated to our relationship with the moon across time, cultures and subjects.
It’s coming up to the 50th anniversary of the first moon landings (or Stanley Kubrick film shoot – depending on your relationship with conspiracy theories) – and London’s getting its first ever moon fest to celebrate. Based in Woolwich but taking place across a range of venues in the capital, this exciting new festival will feature outdoor art spectacles, a pioneering programme of night-time activities and appearances from internationally-renowned artists and speakers. The event will be drawing on humanity’s eternal curiosity about the moon and inspiring its guests to look to the skies with wonder.
Tickets are usually up to £45 each, but with us they start at just £12 – check out the line-up of events and choose whatever piques your interest.
