50,000 people visited Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon at Chichester Cathedral.
The artwork, was on display within the Nave of the 940 year old Cathedral over a three week period, from the 25th October – 14th November 2021.
The Museum of the Moon was accompanied by a diverse programme of events and activities, including lectures from the South Downs Planetarium, workshops from West Sussex Music and the Novium Museum, as well as a Silent Disco for families with Butlins’ Bognor Regis.
The Museum of the Moon was an exciting opportunity to invite a wide spread of people into the Cathedral again, following the challenging period of the pandemic. Most of our visitors had never been inside the Cathedral before. We were over-joyed to see so many families and young people discovering this living church and are so grateful to our community and volunteers for supporting this project. We invite you back to experience the Cathedral once again this Advent and Christmas.

Further highlights include a very special engagement under the Moon, and our youngest visitor (pictured) who made her journey to the Cathedral directly after being registered.
