DISCOVER more about the moon and Stonehenge with lunar-themed family fun over the half term.

Three theatrical shows will provide a lot of laughs, and plenty of opportunities to join in, while revealing some facts and also some myths about the moon and Stonehenge and our long relationship with both.

Taking place at the Stonehenge visitor centre, this will be a whirlwind tour through fast and funny stories (who first thought the moon was made of cheese? And who on earth thought there was an elephant on the moon?), covering everything from space races and moon travel to werewolves, rockets, astronauts, Galileo, HG Wells, Neil Armstrong and beyond.

Jennifer Davies, the head of historic properties at Stonehenge said: “We’d love families to join us this half term to learn all about the moon and the monument.

“These comic shows have been written with families in mind, especially for our Celestial Stonehenge season.

“They are a lot of fun, and will also help our young visitors feel a little closer to the original people of Stonehenge, and understand how important the moon has always been in helping humans to make sense of the world around them.”

Moon Mayhem runs from Saturday, October 26 to Sunday, November 3, 10am to 4pm.
