Cool Events Column: Open Uni to host Moon Night

Former BBC entertainment writer Sarah Bygrave has picked out a VR Moon experience, workshops, markets and a night of comedy to lead up to the 25th

Finally the festive cheer has descended upon us all. Novelty jumpers, endless shopping trips and drinking cocktails on a Tuesday night are all totally acceptable.

Just to make sure that we all don’t just sit about and eat for the whole month I have found some great events to entice you from the sofa. Here are my favourite finds for December…

If like me you are interested in astronomy then this is for you. The Open University are hosting a Moon Night, to discuss and explore astrological ideas and concepts on the evening of the 7th.

There are lots of different topics discussed by lunar researchers and some awesome interactive experiences – you can even walk on the Moon via an immersive virtual reality experience!

The educational event is free to attend, so if you fancy an evening with a twist, book your place at

Every Friday evening in December you will have the chance to get creative and make some gorgeous Christmas decorations as host their Christmas Craft Workshops at Shenley Brook End Village Hall.

You can make a table centrepiece, a wreath and a floral arrangement with all materials provided. Find the events on Facebook to book your chosen workshop.

If festive food is what makes your Christmas special why not pop to the Wolverton Community Farmers Market on the morning of the 15th to get a few last minute gifts for people.

With a wide range of locally sourced food and drink available, you will be spoilt for choice! Search on Facebook for further details or just pop along.

Finally, to unwind before the big day why not visit MK11 for their Grub and Giggle night on the 17th. With a free comedy show and great deals on food, what more could you want?

Merry Christmas everyone!
