Marvel at this stunning artwork of the moon, suspended in the Nave of Lichfield Cathedral.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.

For a truly special experience, the Cathedral will be open for evening events where the artwork will come into its own: internally lit to shine like the moon accompanied by a surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones.

You may view the full t&cs here.

Adults £5.00 (Aged 16+)
