First Light Pavilion is officially open!

Last Saturday the multi-award-winning First Light Pavilion at Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics in Macclesfield officially opened its doors to the general public for the first time.

Led by the University of Manchester First Light Pavilion is a National Lottery Heritage Fund project and a Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport supported initiative to conserve and restore the heritage at the Jodrell Bank site.

Inside the Pavilion is a spectacular exhibition in which visitors can engage with the stories of the amazing scientists and engineers who worked at Jodrell Bank over the years, and whose stories continue today.

The innovative and interactive gallery includes displays, objects, and artifacts from the site’s rich history and incorporates the fabric of the original 1957 surface of the Lovell Telescope. Archive footage and large-scale projections will animate the exhibition and bring the past to life.
