Calling all budding young stargazers! You are invited to join us for an unmissable opportunity to get started in astronomy and what better place to do it than at Jodrell Bank home of the famous Lovell Telescope.

During our fun-packed evening you will enjoy a journey around space in our awesome Space Dome and you’ll be able to get hands on with telescopes and binoculars as you learn to navigate the night sky. You’ll also have the opportunity to hold a real meteorite, dress up as an astronaut taking your first steps on the moon and make your own comet to take home with you! Come and be curious about the cosmos.

Our stunning First Light Café will be open throughout the event serving hot drinks and tasty treats.

Please note that observing the night sky is weather permitting.

This event is recommended for families with children aged 7-11.
