Through the Illuminations season hundreds of primary school kids take part in glow-in-the dark football tournaments.

Dancing in the Moonlight
Friday 26 October
For one night only, dance in the UKs most feted ballroom under the moonlight of Luke Jerram’s spectacular installation, a 7m pixel-perfect replica of our closest astral neighbour. Resident organists Chris Hopkins and Mark Speight will serenade you to an appropriate selection of night-themed classics. Entrance is Free, no dancing experience necessary. The ballroom will remain open until 10.30pm for you to enjoy Jerram’s work.
