On the 50th anniversary of the first landing on the moon, join us for the retelling of The Man in the Moone, the first – and most extraordinary – work of science fiction created, published in 1638 and written by Bishop Francis Godwin whilst living in Whitbourne village.
The tale will transport you into space in the company of adventurer Domingo Gonsales.
