20-23 July 2023 Jodrell Bank Observatory

bluedot in the community

In our mission to be good neighbours we want to both engage and support our local community. Consequently, we are always looking for local charities that we can support and ways we can integrate with local community groups.

Charity donations 

So far since the conception of Bluedot we have raised and donated £17,300 to local causes. We are keen to continue to support charities in the surrounding area and are pleased to introduce a Community Fund for 2022 where local charities can nominate themselves to be considered. The deadline for applications is 17th April 2022 and those who are eligible will then be shortlisted for a public vote. This vote will decide which two charities will receive this year’s fund.

Local Suppliers

Calling all local suppliers!

We are looking for local businesses to nominate themselves as preferred suppliers for the Festival, so that we can promote your services to businesses trading at Bluedot. If you would like to be considered please complete this form by 4th July. 

Volunteering and work experience

We would love for you to be involved! If you are aged 16 or over you can volunteer for the festival. In exchange for just a few hours of your time you will receive a wristband to the event, alongside plenty of free time to enjoy all that the festival has to offer as well as the chance to take home memories for life and meet lots of likeminded people.

If you are interested in volunteering or work experience then please contact us on residents@discoverthebluedot.com If you are part of a local group or organisation who would like to get involved please contact us residents@discoverthebluedot.com so we can discuss your ideas further.
