The Star Pavilion provides a flexible, multipurpose space that can adapted for a variety of purposes and configurations.

Equipped with raked seating and a full suite of AV equipment it will be suitable for conferences and meetings for up to 200 people.

Delegates and attendees are free to enjoy the exhibitions, grounds and gardens whilst on site but access to working parts of the site are not permitted. A talk on the history of Jodrell Bank Observatory and the research performed here can be arranged for a small charge.
