Celebrating our Volunteers

During National Volunteers' Week we are taking the opportunity to say a big ‘thank you’ to all of our fantastic volunteers for their hard work, passion and expertise. We wouldn’t be able to offer all of the amazing activities and special events that we do without their help.


Make a Meadow – FREE activity for ticket holders 1st June.

We are excited to invite all our visitors to participate in a special event: Wildflower planting on our grass-topped dome at our First Light Pavilion on Thursday 1st June.


First Light Pavilion Wins Again

We’re delighted to say that our spectacular new First Light Pavilion and permanent exhibition gallery, which opened in June 2022, has continued to win awards since its launch.


Wildflower Power

This spring, we are working with our volunteer team and our partners at the Cheshire Wildlife Trust to make our dome even ‘greener’ by increasing the biodiversity of the species that inhabit the roof.
