21-24 July 2022 Jodrell Bank Observatory

We’re thrilled to unveil our jam-packed family programme for bluedot 2019.

Celebrating 30 years since the release of ‘A Grand Day Out’ and the iconic quest to find cheese, Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations join our line-up. Led by one of the expert model makers, children will have the chance to create their own characters at the clay modelling workshops on site. There will also be a chance to delve further into the industry during Q&As with the experts and watch the animated short film back in a special screening.

Big Fish Little Fish will be returning to bluedot with its energetic family raves, including kid’s crafting, bubbles, giant balloons, confetti cannons and even a special Clangers rave.

The bill will also include a host of hands-on science shows featuring a chance to learn more about their DNA, exploring the impact our food choices have on climate change, a pop-up OceanDome which will educate festival goers on the ocean and the threats it faces, plus so much more.

Our Science Fields will be brimming with stalls packed with scientific displays, games and interactive experiments from the likes of Chester Zoo Conservationists, Science Girl: Women of Science, RSPB Wildlife Explorers and many more, aiming to excite and inspire any budding scientist.

This year, National Childbirth Trust will be on site to offer a dedicated Parent and Baby Space at the festival to allow parents to feed, change and play.

Explore the wonder of the universe at our family friendly festival this July.
