Let’s dream our futures together

Bringing together talks, cinema, music and games all under one cosmic theme – Tour de Moon celebrates the relationship between the earth and the moon with a number of thought-provoking, exciting and original experiences; with a special focus on nightlife, creativity and culture.

On its epic journey across the country, Tour de Moon is stopping in Leicester, Newcastle and Southampton throughout May and June where four days of interactive events are taking place in each city, appealing to everyone from amateur sports teams to music lovers.

Alongside the three main cities, Moon Convoy will visit Bletchley, Wolverhampton, Grimsby, Huddersfield, Blackburn, Barrow-in-Furness, Plymouth, Farnborough and Crawley, concluding at Hackney’s Pedro’s Youth Club – one of the oldest youth organisations in the UK.

There are eight distinct strands to Tour de Moon: from Moon Cinema to Moon Music, from the interactive Moon Hotline to the touring Moon Convoy. The programme has been created with the help of hundreds of 18- to 25-year-old creatives from across the UK, enlisted via a free open call.
