This incredible installation is a fusion of large-scale NASA lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound audio created by Ivor Novello Award and BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones and makes its Dorset debut in three stunning locations this summer centred round a full programme of free lunar-inspired events that will create an experience that is out of this world!

This stunning illumination will land in Bournemouth, Sherborne and Weymouth over three weekends:
