27-28 November and 4-5 December,
10am – 6pm
It’s that time of year again! Hot chocolates, mince pies, snow glistening around a scenic Lovell telescope, and plenty of family fun. Christmas is nearly here and we’re pleased to be hosting two special shopping weekends, supported by live science shows and seasonal offers in The Planet café.
Plan your visit for 27-28 November or 4-5 December to enjoy…
Pop in any time from 10am – 6pm to browse our shop for Christmas gift ideas. You don’t even need to book admission to do this, our shop (and Cafe!) is open to everyone.
If you’re thinking about purchasing a telescope this year but want some advice, from 1pm – 6pm, on each Sunday, a representative from Celestron Telescopes will be on hand to demonstrate a range of stargazing products and answer any questions you might have. Of course, our expert staff will also be around all weekend to help you with any other product queries you might have.
To get some early inspiration, why not browse our Christmas Gift Guide here… And, if you can’t make it to Jodrell Bank, you can always purchase online –there’s free UK delivery on all orders over £35!
Science Shows & Star Crafts!
While you’re visiting on either of these weekends, you can also enjoy a special live Science Show included in general admission. Our new show will be all about stars and will include some surprising and colourful demonstrations along the way!
Meanwhile, our Classroom will also be open for drop-in craft activities including making your own star decorations to take home with you, and look out for under 5s storytelling in our cosy Comet Lodge!
The Planet Cafe
No visit to Jodrell Bank is completed without a stop by The Planet Cafe. To celebrate our Christmas weekends, we’ll be offering a free Star Biscuit with every Children’s hot chocolate and a free mince pie with every adult’s hot drink! What’s not to love about that?!
So, plan your visit today, we can’t wait to welcome you.
