Here’s a small […]

I’ve recently paid a visit to the moon, I know that sounds a bit extreme so let me explain.   My lunar trip took place thanks to excellent Harris Museum in Preston, Lancashire. Until the 24th of February the museum is hosting the stunning art instillation ‘The Museum Of The Moon’ created by the artist Luke Jerram, it’s also accompanied by a soundtrack from the composer Dan Jones. The artwork […]
