The exhibition culminates in installation artist Luke Jerrams 23-foot high, giant three-dimensional moon being suspended in the centre of the Grade I listed building for all to see.
The installation combines lunar imagery, moonlight and a surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.
There will also be guided tours, led by UCLan astrophysics experts, at 3.30pm, 4.45pm and 6pm.
Tours are free but places are provided on a first come, first served basis.
There will be some ticketed events (free and paid) during the time the moon installation is on display.
