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.

Christmas is rapidly approaching, and if you haven’t already crammed your stockings full, hastily wrapped your presents, or even decorated the tree, we want to help alleviate some stress with our helpful guide to picking those extra-special, out-of-this-world gifts.

Our First Light volunteering program will offer members of the community new ways to lend their support and directly involve themselves within the site.

As the Summer holidays draw to a close and Autumn appears just around the corner, we’re taking the opportunity to look back over the last year, and to look forward to the future.

After a two year hiatus, the much-loved bluedot festival is set to return to Jodrell Bank on 21-24 July 2022 and the team have today announced an unmissable Björk performance as the Sunday night headline act.

This summer, 50 of Cheshire’s young carers visited Jodrell Bank for free thanks to supporters of our Community Tickets scheme.

As kids are getting ready to jet off back to school, we’ve put together an out-of-this-world shopping guide to help them prepare for launch.

We’re delighted to be able to fully re-open The Planet Cafe at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre and are thrilled to launch a brand new menu full of fresh, local and sustainable produce.

Over the summer we’ll be taking the time to give the Lovell Telescope some well-deserved TLC. During the next 8 weeks, a range of essential maintenance works will be carried out on the famous structure, including cleaning, welding, and painting.
