We are thrilled that as part of the Harrogate International Festival programme, St Wilfrid’s will be hosting the iconic Museum of the Moon.
This art installation, created by Luke Jerram using hi-tech NASA imagery has wowed wherever it has been displayed.
Fr Gary Waddington, Team Rector at St Wilfrid’s said:
“We’re hugely exited that this iconic art installation is to be on display in our iconic building.
50 years after the moon landings, we can be reminded not only of what humanity can achieve, but of the beauty of the space we inhabit. We’re looking forward to the thousands of people who are expected to visit and hope they’ll enjoy the experience both of the Museum of the Moon and also of this amazing building.”
The exhibition runs from the 7th – 14th July.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first man on the moon, St Wilfrid’s will become home to an out of this world art installation. In situ for just over a week, Museum of the Moon is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. 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 represents 5KM of the moon’s surface.
