The out-of-this-world installation has delighted people of all ages since it landed on the first day of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, and lots of people have shared their moon pictures with us.

William Galinsky, the festival's artistic director, said: 'We've seen people from all over come to bathe, chat, or just stargaze underneath it. We have had an eclectic collection of free performances beneath it, from poetry and readings, to local theatre company Total Ensemble and Norwich Cathedral Choir, and there's more this weekend with carnival-inspired music. There has been a constant buzz around The Forum since it was unveiled and that, for me, is what the festival does in its simplest form – bring people together and give them something wonderful to talk about.'
