October Half Term at Jodrell Bank

Autumn has arrived and our Half Term activities are running for two weeks this year (21 October – 5 November). We’ve got a packed programme of events and activities to explore and enjoy with all the family…

We’ve partnered with Manchester Science Festival and will be running Stargazing Nights and Science Shows as part of the event. While our two Stargazing Nights have sold out, there’s still chance to enjoy the Science Show, running on weekdays at 11, 12, and 2:30.

Meanwhile, our popular Meet the Expert sessions are back on weekdays at 1pm, while Telescope Walking Tours are taking place every day (including weekends) at 3pm.

We’ve got a new event just for the under 5s too. Set in our Clockwork Orrery, little ones can enjoy a journey through the solar system, stopping at some of the planets to discover what they sound, smell and feel like. Weekdays at 1:45pm

And finally, we’ll be celebrating the turning of the seasons in our arboretum every weekend with garden tours (running on Saturdays at 11am and 1:30pm) and drop-in craft activities (weekends, 11am- 15:30pm)

See you soon!
