The ARI organises and attends many public outreach events through the year. We can bring a stand for an exhibition space, workshops or hands-on activities for families, or speakers for a wide range of audiences, so if you would like us to attend an upcoming event please email @email
Some Previous Events
Described as "four days of music, science and cosmic culture", bluedot is an annual festival at the Jodrell Bank Observatory. With a special remote observing session by the Liverpool Telescope in the Canary Islands, and a stand in collaboration with the Institute of Physics, we had a great time sharing some of our research with all comers.
Under the Moon 2018
Held under the amazing Museum of the Moon exhibit by artists Luke Jerram in the vast spaces of Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, Under the Moon was a specially-curated programme of lunar-inspired events including an Astrophysics lecture and discussion led by ARI staff.
Following on from our Gold-medal winning success at the Tatton RHS Flow Show in 2013, we took the next step up to exhibit a garden at the the RHS Flower Show 2015. Winning another Gold Medal, and even the "Best In Category" Award, it was a great success, with fantastic feedback from visitors at the Show and lots of national and international media coverage (including an estimated 200 million global TV audience).
The garden has now been relocated to the STFC Daresbury Laboratory
