The Lunar Society was one of the most influential groups in the 18th century, no aspect of science and industry was overlooked at their monthly dinner parties. Although the development of the steam engine and coinage production became the main focus for Matthew Boulton, he had developed a passion for astronomy. Andrew will tell us the story of the Lunar Society’s interest in astronomy based on new research that has revealed some surprising facts!
