B. E. Cole: Sea Gold - Aur y Môr

Until Saturday 31st August 2019

A fossil beach, sea creatures past and present; all around us is a wealth of flora and fauna which, as any beach-comber, sea-bather and walker of the coastal paths knows, can be devastated by ignorance and complacency. The seas feed us; the seas gave us life. The sculptures in this exhibition are built from recycled materials either as they were made or after they have been cast.

8 Days: To the Moon and Back

Saturday 20th July 2019 - 7pm

MOMA Machynlleth is proud to present an exclusive screening of a new BBC/PBS/Open University documentary made to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first humans to land on the Moon.

8 Days’ tells the incredible story of that journey and the three astronauts – Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins – from blast off to splash down. Combining archive footage with brand-new reconstructions, 8 Days takes you inside the Apollo 11 story like never before, putting you in the capsule with the astronauts as they do the impossible and put a man on the Moon…

Watch the 8 Days trailer

The writer of the documentary, Philip Ralph, a local Machynlleth resident, will introduce the film and will offer a Q&A after the screening.
