Rob Gittins, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for culture and digital, said:-

“This is no small step for the museum, it’s a giant leap into new events at the attraction.

“The Moon exhibition in the Special Exhibitions Gallery puts the spotlight on 5,000 years of humankind’s fascination with our celestial neighbour, allows visitors to relive historic moments in lunar discovery and exploration, and includes real, touchable Moon rock. It is such a fascinating exhibition and Moon Late allows people to enjoy the exhibition in a wholly different way.”

Tickets for Moon Late, which is being held from 7pm to 10pm on Thursday 6 April 2023, cost £15 (to include the first drink) and are available at www.shropshiremuseums.org.uk/events

The Moon exhibition is in the Special Exhibitions Gallery at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery until Sunday 16 April 2023.
