Event Information

Tue 16 July | 1.32pm precisely

At 9.32am Eastern Standard Time on 16 July 1969, Apollo 11 blasted off on 

the beginnings of its fantastic voyage — with close to a million people gathered around Kennedy Space Centre to witness the liftoff for themselves.

At 1.32pm Co-ordinated Universal Time — exactly 50 years later to the very minute — MoonFest will officially launch with a specially commissioned film which welcomes you to the festival and looks at what lies ahead over the next nine days.

Wherever you are at this historic moment, stop whatever you’re doing (as long as it’s legal and safe to do so) and, from the comfort of your own computer or mobile device, tune in as the eyes of the whole world turn to Birmingham.
