We’re thrilled to announce that Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre was awarded Excellence in Learning and Enrichment at the Family Traveller Awards this week!

A new piece of modern art, featuring Jodrell Bank and created by world-renowned artist, David Mach RA, has been unveiled to celebrate the start of six weeks of celebrations for The National Lottery’s 25th birthday.

Thank You Week is back! From 25 November – 1 December, we will be taking part in the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s #ThanksToYou campaign by offering FREE ADMISSION* to all our visitors who play the National Lottery.

After a long period of maintenance work, the Lovell Telescope is back in action!
Since the spring of 2018, a number of tasks have been undertaken on the Telescope including painting, steelwork repairs, and a major project to fully replace the original 1957 Telescope surface.

Vote for Jodrell Bank

We’re up for two new Awards and you can help us win by taking part in the public vote!

Jodrell Bank was awarded Special Contribution to Tourism at last night’s Marketing Cheshire Awards, in recognition of its achievement in receiving UNESCO World Heritage Site status. 

Ready for all things space and aliens this October half-term? Well, we’ve got a packed programme of tours, shows and interactive activities to keep your budding young scientists busy during the holidays.

Each year we select three or four undergraduate students to come and spend two months of the summer with us. After a period of training they assist in the delivery of our programme of events for the public at Bluedot and over the school summer holidays at the Discovery Centre.

We are looking for friendly, outgoing people to join the team at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre as Visitor Welcome Volunteers!

We’re delighted to announce a new programme of events and activities for Autumn/Winter, all designed to delight and inspire!
