Bruntwood, one of the UK’s leading commercial property companies that has been creating thriving cities for over forty years, has partnered with bluedot for the third year to support the multi-award winning festival’s fifth installment at Cheshire’s iconic Jodrell Bank Observatory.
For this year’s festival, which runs from 21st-24th July, bluedot has unveiled an incredible music, arts and science line-up including Bjork, Mogwai, Groove Armada, Professor Jim Al-Khalili, Stewart Lee and many more.
The partnership will see Bruntwood create a bespoke VIP area at the festival including a co-working space featuring free hot drinks, ultrafast wifi, charging points, work stations and a chillout area with street food vendors, a bar and the ultimate festival luxury – premium toilets.
Ahead of the festival, Bruntwood and bluedot ran a series of talks called ‘bluedot in conversation’, hosted at Bruntwood Works and Bruntwood SciTech buildings in Manchester. With speakers including TV & radio presenter - Tom Heap, and women’s rights activist - Helen Pankhurst, along with senior leaders from the Royal Exchange Theatre and Band on the Wall, these thought leadership discussions explored sustainability, fair society and cultural vibrancy.
Nicola McGee, Bruntwood Marketing Director, said: “This partnership with bluedot is extremely important to us, because by nurturing a cultural scene that encourages curious minds, it aligns with our purpose of supporting communities and helping our regions and cities to thrive.
“Together with bluedot, we hope to help make an impact and inspire change for all of its attendees across the weekend and beyond. Bruntwood has a long-standing connection with and love of science, arts and music and so we’re delighted to be partnering with bluedot again this year. We believe that the most thriving cities and communities are those which have a vibrant cultural scene, bringing people together within a safe and positive environment. Bluedot does just this, collaborating with amazing artists, creators, individuals and organisations to add to the richness of our region.”
