Ever wondered why we dress trees at Christmas? Visit Jodrell Bank for their Tree Dressing Festival, and find out about this ancient tradition of community, heritage and culture. You’ll make your own tree decorations, including willow stars, leaf garlands and clay faces to join in the tree festivities.

Jodrell Bank are taking part in the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s #ThanksToYou celebrations. From Monday 25th November – Sunday 1st December, admission to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre will be free to National Lottery Players to say thanks for helping to raise funds awarded for their First Light Project.
