Take-off with the launch party!

A special evening will wrap around you with recurring live music from STEMS: a newly composed 12-minute soundtrack to Georges Méliès landmark 1902 silent film A Trip To The Moon.

Lunar-Ci is a live-scored, improvised musical interpretation by composer Charlie Wells and vocalist Jacqui Wicks. Lunar-Ci is inspired by lunar mythology, science and personal testimonies of 1969's Apollo 11 moon landing.

Street food and alcoholic drinks on sale outside the former Market Hall from 4pm and doors open to the Launch Party at 6:30pm.

Lunar-Ci is a Creative Challenge commission.
