Jodrell Bank Centre for Engagement is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Visitor Attraction in the heart of the Cheshire Countryside, just 20 miles from Manchester Airport. A unique venue for large conferences, product launches and evening functions. In 2022, the site was redeveloped with the construction of the £21.5M First Light Pavilion, a state-of-the art concrete brutalist building with a cafe, Planetarium Cinema and foyer area. The site also has 3 additional exhibition pavilions, a private cafe, tourism shop, nordic wooden lodge, hireable tipi and a 35 acre historic Arboretum.


Jodrell Bank is based in 35 acres of Arboretum and Cheshire Peak District in the rural village of Lower Withington, just 15 minutes from Macclesfield and 20 miles from Manchester.
