Drop in and discover Moon Palace as part of “The Path Between” at Meanwood Valley Farm for an other-worldly experience. Spend time chatting with your Artist and Scientist hosts or browse the onboard library over a cup of ‘cosmic’ tea! This experience is suitable for all ages.
A gift from East Leeds to the world, Moon Palace is your ticket to the stars without leaving the city. Created by artists Heather Peak and Ivan Morison, this new artwork and mobile observatory is inspired by the legacy of John Smeaton and the observatory he had in East Leeds. The project is part of Leeds Year of Culture 2023.
