Event details

Is the Moon made of cheese? Erm… no. But the origin and longevity of the myth is interesting to discuss over some delicious cheeses and wines!

 

Noel Jackson, Life’s resident expert, will explore this peculiar myth and share some fun facts about the science of cheese, lunar space missions – and explain what a Blue Moon is as you nibble on delicious blue cheese!

 

The perfect number of cheeses on a cheese board is four, with a mould-ripened soft cheese, a young cheese, a mature cheese and a blue*. We are sourcing the very best of each type to serve alongside a paired wine**.

 

The talk and tasting will be set against the stunning backdrop of art installation Museum of the Moon. Created by UK artist Luke Jerram, Museum of the Moon is a seven-metre-wide illuminated sphere that is covered in digital imagery of the lunar surface and suspended above the ground.

 

Friday 1 March 2019, 8.00pm - 10.15pm
£39.00 per person (18+ only)

 

If you would like to explore Museum of the Moon up-close, please arrive early (doors open at 7.30pm). Guests will be asked to take their seats at 8.00pm***.

*We cannot cater for specific dietary requirements. Some cheeses will be unpasteurised. Set food menu – no alternatives will be offered.
