In 2022 we finally opened our spectacular, world-leading gallery – the First Light Pavilion… Throughout the whole project, we have focused on sustainability as a guiding principle.
We want to welcome as many people as we can to our world here at Jodrell Bank – so that people can find out about the Universe around us and feel wonder at the amazing Cosmos that surrounds us.

Our ambitious £21.5m development, the First Light Pavilion was officially opened at a special event on the summer solstice, Tuesday 21st June in the company of over 100 esteemed guests.
