As part of Vivacity’s 'Without Walls' programme, the stunning 'Museum of The Moon' is coming to Peterborough Cathedral from the evening of 5th October until 14th October.

Museum of the Moon is a new touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and a surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones.

In Peterborough, there will be a programme of lunar-inspired activities and community events beneath the moon. Opening times will be the same as for the Cathedral, although some restrictions may be in place due to other events taking place.


Museum of The Moon is being brought to Peterborough with the support of 'Without Walls' of which Vivacity is an Associate Touring Network partner. The Associate Touring Network is a group of festival partners who work together to support the onward touring of work commissioned by 'Without Walls' to diverse audiences across England in areas of low engagement with the arts.
