The Natural History Museum will host Museum of the Moon from 17 May, giving event planners the chance to let guests spend an evening under artist Luke Jerram’s illuminated moon.
The art installation, measuring six metres in diameter, features detailed NASA imagery to perfectly recreate the moon’s surface.
Jerram’s moon has toured the world since its launch in Bristol in 2016 and has been enjoyed at festivals, sporting events and in public spaces.
From 17 May until 8 September, the art installation will be part of the Museum’s temporary exhibitions. After hours, event guests can dance the night away underneath the mesmerising lunar glow.
Museum of the Moon will be in the Jerwood Gallery, with space for up to 300 for dinner.
"It will be the first time that the installation has featured in private parties and events, so I’m excited to see how the space will be adapted and utilised over the course of its time at the Museum," said Jerram.
Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations and live arts projects. The Museum of the Moon was inspired by living in Bristol and noticing the huge tidal variation as he cycled over the Avon Cut each day.
