Bluedot Festival

Taking place beside the giant radio telescope at Jodrell Bank Observatory.

This event is running from 18-21 of July and includes live music from Hot Chip, Kraftwerk, New Order, Jon Hopkins, Anna Calvi, Jarvis Cocker, Kate Tempest, and more.

There are also a bunch of science of talks - featuring the first British astronaut, Helen Sharman, presenter Liz Bonnin, Extinction Rebellion, activist Helen Pankhurst, and physicist Jim Al-Khalili.

Throughout the year, there are also walking tours around the Lovell, and later in the summer a drop-in event, Moon Rock and Meteorites (19 July-30 August), with the chance to hold real pieces of the moon brought back by Apollo astronauts.

In 2025, TCT Aerospace will be returning 1kg of Moon rock to the Earth's surface. This larger piece of Moon rock can be held by members of the public and will be touring the country!
