About The Event

Blink, you’re not seeing things. For four days in February a fake moon will appear in the night sky from College Green.

Join us on College Green and welcome this extraordinary lunar guest to Bristol.

Rising from outside City Hall, this huge, intense ball of light illuminates the city skyline, casting long shadows across the grass. Created and devised by international artist Simon Faithfull,  Fake Moon is a spectacular piece of public art, driven by man, helium and pulley.

Fake Moon is a Free event open to all ages. Drop by on your way home from work, or make an evening of it and bring family and friends along.

Our Festival Hub opposite is open for hot drinks and mulled wine.
