ARTS and Culture

award-winning visual arts and exclusive commissions, side-splitting comedy and insightful debate

From award-winning visual arts and exclusive commissions to side-splitting comedy and insightful debate, bluedot’s arts and culture programme has seen us collaborate with the likes of The Observer and Rough Trade Books plus Tim Burgess’ much-loved Listening Parties. Comedy highlights have included Adam Buxton’s BUG!, Stewart Lee in conversation, and appearances from Lolly Adefope and Kiri Pritchard-Mclean. Our Notes arena has hosted specially-curated sessions featuring Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, Musa Okwonga, Kelly Lee Owens, Helen Pankhurst, Delia Derbyshire Day and David Prowse, while original arts commissions have seen us collaborate with Brian Eno, Daito Manebe, Luke Jerram, Alison Smith, Groove Armada and Mogwai. By night, live art and performance bring Jodrell Bank to life, with twilight parades weaving throughout the arena after dark, the new Fire Garden experience with the award-winning Walk The Plank, and original commission of visuals and ambient music created in partnership with Greenaway & Greenaway and Jodrell Bank each night on the face of the monolithic Lovell Telescope.
