The Moon Picnic is for all the family! Lounge with your picnic on the free blankets provided and see live performances including BBC's The Clangers.

There's an amazing music filled Inflatable Planetarium - The Dome - where you can get up close to the night sky.

We're Going On A Moon Hunt - from Social I Sing - is a short multi-sensory workshop for pre-school children and their grown-ups exploring moon themed stories with music, singing and drama. A friendly environment of music, singing and drama is planned to boost everyone’s experience of visiting the Moon, providing the a perfect, early years introduction to space exploration and maybe inspire a whole new generation of astronauts.

In Drawing Space, visual artist Helen Thomas leads people through large scale collaborative drawing and mark making.

Space Rocks combines Think Cre8tive's arts experience with broad health and well-being benefits at all times of life, by bringing their enthusiasm for connecting people with their creativity. In a simple workshop, visitors are invited to paint rocks with a space theme, then encouraged to take them away and then hide them around the Wakefield district for them to form part of a Space Rock trail and social media group, where rock finds can be recorded as they continue their journey around the area and, perhaps, beyond.

We're Going On A Moon Hunt, Drawing Space and Space Rocks are Creative Commissions.

Children welcome
