5 – 7 July

Free

Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon will land in Sherborne Abbey from Friday 5 – Sunday 7 July.
Experience this stunning installation with an exciting programme of free events within the Abbey and across this historic rural town.

Full programme of free events will be announced soon.

Did you know: Founded by St Aldhelm in AD705, the Abbey has developed from Saxon cathedral to the worshipping heart of a monastic community, and finally, to one of the most beautiful of England’s parish churches. For many it is still the ‘Cathedral of Dorset’ and its Benedictine heritage lives on in the daily offering of prayer and praise.

Dorset Moon is brought to you by Dorset’s arts festivals Inside Out Dorset (Activate), b-side and Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival and are curating the exciting free events you will experience at each location.

Moon Fact #2

Craters are the most common surface features on many solid planets and moons—Mercury and our Moon are covered with craters. This portion of the Moon is covered by numerous circular holes. These are impact craters, each of which was formed when an asteroid or comet collided with the Moon’s surface.
