New event space at the Natural History Museum brings you to the moon

Golborne Events are one of the most knowledgable event planners in London when it comes to the Natural History Museum. They give us an exclusive insight into the new event space coming soon!

“At Golborne we are always striving to create the most unique events at iconic London event spaces. What could be more unique than to co-host your event with the moon!

If you caught the Super Red Wolf Moon on January 21st you will have been reminded just how beautiful and powerful it is. Multidisciplinary artist Luke Jerram certainly thinks so, as he presents his 7-metre-wide Museum of the Moon installation at the iconic Natural History Museum this summer. Golborne are delighted to be able to bring you exclusive access to this unique venue of London. As London event planners specialising in iconic city venues, the Natural History Museum is one of our favourites, and almost a home from home.

This space is exclusively available Friday 17th May to Sunday 8th September 2019 only, offering guests a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity to host an event. Get in touch.

To the moon and back in the Natural History Jerwood Gallery

“Just off Dinosaur Way, The Jerwood Gallery has the rich and traditional beauty of Waterhouse architecture in abundance. This stunning space will be able to hold a capacity of 300 guests for dinner, dinner dance and standing reception.

To access the gallery, guests would enter via the Darwin Centre, meaning your event could also include the additional option of a summer drinks reception in the courtyard if the weather is fine, or in the Darwin Centre atrium if wet.

The combination of the Courtyard space for your reception and the Museum of the Moon for your party space is perfect for summer celebrations. This year Golborne Events are getting earlier access to the Darwin centre and courtyard, which means your guests can arrive from 6pm for a summer party – perfect for catching sun down vibes before heading to the moon.

The private landscaped Courtyard is the ideal space for a summer reception for between 100-300 guests. We can provide street food, deck chairs, acoustic bands, festival theming and more.”

“For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams” – Edgar Allan Poe

“The moon has always been an intriguing part of cultural history. Many myths, stories and beliefs have been inspired by the moon and this has influenced writers, poets, artist, scientists and musicians for centuries.

The Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by Luke Jerram that is being presented at a number of arts and cultural festivals over the coming years. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition.

Measuring an impressive seven metres in diameter, the moon features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface. As the Museum of the Moon travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science. Making the installation an ever growing, organic art installation. Unless you are embarking on a space mission any time soon, this is as close as most of us will ever get!”
