Maumbury Rings
Maumbury Road, Dorchester, DT1 1QN

Fifty years ago this year man went to the moon! And Dorchester Arts will celebrate the anniversary of this monumental moment in human history with a huge outdoor musical event in Maumbury Rings, Dorchester – rechristened Moonbury Rings for a whole weekend of celebrations.

On Friday July 19th more than 500 children will join in a performance led by the projects musical director Alasdair Malloy – one of the UK’s finest percussionists and conductors.

With a moon-themed Outdoor Cinema event from the Town Council on Saturday 20th and a Family Science Day on Sunday 21st, Moonbury Rings is set to be one of the highlights of 2019… and something for the youngsters to remember for the next 5 years when they look back on the centenary of the landings…maybe from Mars!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 19/07/2019
