The Moon, Lancaster Priory, from Friday November 1
The Moon is landing at Lancaster Priory this November! The historic church will host one of the world’s most awe-inspiring artworks – a massive moon – suspended from its ancient rafters. Measuring seven metres in diameter, The Moon features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. Lots of events are planned alongside the visit, see www.lancasterpriory.org.
Lancashire Electric, The Storey, Lancaster, from Friday, November 1
The atmosphere will be electric when visitors to Lancaster’s Storey Gallery are invited to take a journey through time. Lancashire Electric will see rare archive footage from a century of life in the county projected into the gallery. Visitors can move around and immerse themselves in moving images of childhood, work and play, some of which will be screened on deckchairs hung in the gallery. Themes include the changing relationship between people and the landscape – from rural Lancashire to the coast. Admission is free, see www.lancaster.gov.uk/sites/the-storey.
