That was Bluedot 2017!

From 7th – 9th July, Jodrell Bank welcomed thousands of festival goers to Bluedot, our annual celebration of science, discovery, live music, and cosmic culture. The award-winning festival was back for its second outing with a packed programme of exhibits, talks, experiments, live performances and artistic interventions. It was a truly mind-expanding and inspiring weekend and we can’t quite believe its all over!

You can relive some of the magic over on twitch.tv where you’ll find a host of videos from the festival. And, you can browse our selection of photographs below. You can also share your own photos and film with us on twitter -tag us @jodrellbank and @bluedotfestival. You’ll find us on facebook too at Jodrell Bank and Bluedot.

We want to take the opportunity to thank all our many partners, speakers, artists and exhibitors who made Bluedot 2017 so special, and of course, to all those that attended the festival over the weekend. We can’t wait to welcome you all back again next summer!
