Grace Jones closes the final night of bluedot 2023, with Young Fathers and a special Closing Party with Annie Mac. The iconic, inimitable Jones has been a legend in the worlds of music, art and fashion since the 1970’s and with the critically-acclaimed Warm Leatherette and Nightclubbing albums has been at the forefront of futuristic new wave and disco for close to fifty years. Her 2008 album, the stunning Hurricane, birthed the autobiographical William’s Blood, one of her finest moments.

During the day, enjoy a special afternoon of Doctor Who celebrations, with talks, panels and screenings celebrating 60 years of the world’s best-loved sci-fi series, plus science and culture with the New Scientist Podcast, a Bowie special of Adam Buxton’s Bug! and much more…
