Founded in 1985 by Satellite Arts, the festival is now a charity in it’s own right and has staged over 30 festival events.

Based at The Watershed the festival continues to profile the area through its traditional legend of Moonraking using Lanterns, Music and Story-telling to engage people in creative events.

The festival launches in the even year with Moonshine building to a full Moonraking Lantern Festival with workshops,  Installations, and Finale Procession in the odd year.
