Just a week or two after we celebrated the idea of booking Luna for your next event, the Natural History Museum launched their Museum of the Moon exhibit and we were lucky enough to supply Luna’s Moona act, which was the perfect choice for such a theme!
Museum of the Moon is an inflatable installation artwork by artist Luke Jerram and is a spherical replica of the moon that measures in at seven metres in diameter. A number of replicas exist and have been loaned to museums across the world including Barcelona and Sydney, whilst the UK version is currently on tour and has just stopped off at the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall. As you can see from the photos by Two by Two, the result is absolutely stunning.
How best to launch such a gorgeous exhibit as Museum of the Moon? By holding a massive party of course! Working in conjunction with a whole host of suppliers including (deep breath) Rhubarb catering, Great Hire, Bespoke Productions, Mary Jane Vaughan and of course the Natural History Museum team, the evening was a huge success.
In between sampling the canapés, knocking back the cocktails and marvelling at the fact the moon was just metres away from us, we thought it might be prudent to supply some mood music for the evening. As such, Entourage took to the floor performing a host of tunes right beneath the lunar marvel itself. How’s that for an impressive gig venue? Comprising a saxophonist, violinist and DJ, the group were a fabulous fit for the launch party, causing multiple guests to whip out their phones…or at least divert them from the moon to the musicians.
Fresh from performing at both the Sky Garden and the Wallace Collection, Luna is proving to be the act of the hour! Having recently written a blog on how it is an excellent addition to any event, we truly think it was made for this one, with an acrobat performing inside a crescent moon; there truly is nothing quite as graceful as this. As one would expect, it also provided excellent photo opportunities as seen on our Instagram – you just needed to line the camera up perfectly!
One final thing to note... There was a lovely bench that could be found at the venue on the evening of the night in question and were you to sit at it, you were offered the most wonderful view of the moon. And what did it say on that plaque we wonder..? A nice touch from the Natural History Museum team!
As one might expect from such an extraordinary artwork being placed in an extraordinary building with extraordinary entertainment, this was an extraordinary event. Observing guests as they walked by the light of the moon was positively lovely and we strongly urge you to visit the Natural History Museum to observe Museum of the Moon while it’s on display.
