Presentation LUNATICK ASTRONOMY

Ipswich, Suffolk, United Kingdom

The Lunar Society was one of the most influential groups in the 18th century, no aspect of science and industry was overlooked at their monthly dinner parties. Although the development of the steam engine and coinage production became the main focus for Matthew Boulton, he had developed a passion for astronomy. Andrew Lound tells the story of the Lunar Society’s interests in astronomy based on new research that has revealed some surprising facts! A dramatic presentation beautifully illustrated and accompanied by music and presented with 18th century flair!
