Artist: Luke Jerram

Location: St Mary's Church, Fratton Road

All three days, 5pm-9pm


Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon will make a captivating centre piece at St Marys Church, Fratton,  as the impressive seven-metre-wide floating moon lights up the church and immerses audiences with its detailed 120dpi NASA imagery and a surround sound composed by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Having toured the globe from featuring at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, to the Bejing Watercube and appearing above Strictly Come Dancing’s dancefloor, we’re thrilled that its next stop will be We Shine Portsmouth!
