The name of Lunar Festival stems from The Lunar Society of Birmingham. This began in the eighteenth century with a group of extremely talented and intelligent men, led by Erasmus Darwin, who came together under the light of the Full Moon for lively dinner conversations. Their debates brought together Philosophy, Arts, Science and Commerce. As well as debating and discovering, the ‘Lunarticks’ also built canals and factories, managed world-class businesses and changed the face of Birmingham not to mention laying the foundations for the Industrial Revolution.
Today, The Lunar Society provides a platform for its membership to “influence change through stimulating ideas, broadening debate and catalysing action”. Taking inspiration from this, Lunar Festival will not only bring music artists to the stages, but encourage everyone to get involved in workshops, talks and more.
Lunar Festival’s programme surrounds Lunar’s 7 Elements – Listen, Learn, Move, Create, Taste, Relax and Laugh.
