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.

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.

We’re thrilled to have Practical Action on board once again as one of bluedot’s official charity partners for 2018.

Join us at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre this summer as we celebrate the wonder of our home planet and dive into the exciting world of environmental science.

This week marks Volunteers Week and we want to send a huge thank you to all the volunteers here at Jodrell Bank.

With half term nearly over and under 7 weeks to go till the return of our award-winning festival bluedot (19-22 July), now’s the perfect time for families to start planning their trip.

Prime Minister Theresa May visited Jodrell Bank on Monday to deliver a major speech on science technology and to confirm funding for our spectacular new First Light project.

After a long winter and a slow start to spring the Jodrell Bank bees been desperate to get out to forage amongst the 3,000 trees and shrubs in our 35 acre arboretum.
