bluedot is a festival of discovery which includes elements of science, music and arts spread throughout the incredible Jodrell Bank Observatory. 2023 will be our sixth year at Jodrell Bank and the festival is set to run from Thursday 20 – Sunday 23 July. 

We are committed to ensuring that we are a good neighbour for the brief period we are in residence. We genuinely welcome feedback in order to improve the way we deliver our events and engage with the local community. There are a number of ways local residents can get in touch and get involved in the festival.
