To the Moon and Back

To the Moon and Back

Barbican Centre · 13 DEC - 21 DEC

Young and grown-up travellers can celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing at the Barbican as co-creators of imaginary worlds


With a simple knock on a front door, you and your little one will share a multi-sensory journey of discovery into interactive spaces of touch, colour, sound and special effects. You’ll encounter props and scenes that conjure the natural world, made of unusual and tactile materials, from feather rain to velvet stars. You’ll also be shown ideas on how everyday objects can be turned into tools for creativity and fun at home.

Artistic Director and founder of company M-SET, Paula Manning invents delightful installations, often combining live music, drama, visual arts and design that stimulates the senses.

This is a participatory, promenade experience in which young children and their parents/carers are encouraged to interact and explore the installation.

All sessions are relaxed.

Age Recommendation: For babies aged 3–14 months and children aged up to 4. There are targeted sessions for babies and children.
