Amidst the frenzy of Black Friday, don’t forget to support the gift shop at Jodrell Bank. All profits raised from purchases in our shop are reinvested into supporting our mission to inspire the scientists of the future.

Last week, we released the audio recordings from a Soviet space mission from almost exactly fifty years ago, just as the race to the Moon was approaching the finish line.

To celebrate the changing of the seasons, we held our first Family Stargazing Night of the year last Saturday.

Last Thursday we hosted another Girls Night Out event here at Jodrell Bank…

This summer, we partnered up with the Association for Science and Discovery Centres and the Natural Environment Research Council to engage our visitors with a host of fun and fact-packed shows and activities exploring the world of environmental science.

What’s on this autumn?

As the seasons start to change and summer turns to autumn, we’re looking forward to a host of exciting new events…

Visitors to the Discovery Centre will notice that the Lovell Telescope is currently undergoing some maintenance work. A number of significant tasks are being undertaken: painting, steelwork repairs at the top of one of the supporting towers, and replacement of the original 1957 surface.

From 19-22 July, we welcomed more than 18,000 festival-goers to Jodrell Bank for a packed celebration of science, music, art and discovery.

This year’s bluedot (19-22 July) has an incredible line-up and the arts and culture programming is bigger than ever.

The award winning bluedot festival will be opening in just three weeks time with Blue Planet in Concert, performed by the Hallé Orchestra on Thursday 19th July. The event kicks off a brand new family four-day format for the festival and promises to be a night to remember.
