Neon Moon – Gilded Birdcage

Yesterday the Neon Moon invaded the Cambridge Union Society. The benches were removed to clear space for a stage in the centre. This is the third time I have photographed the Neon Moon show, previously I have done the Summer Circus and Fiesta de los Muertos. This time the show was “The Gilded Birdcage”.
