The cities people are attracted to live, work and play in have thriving cultural scenes
Our partnership with award-winning arts and science festival bluedot matters 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.
Our most recent cultural partnership sees us support the art, science, music and cultural festival bluedot. The family-friendly festival takes place every summer in the grounds of the Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire attracting 30,000 festivalgoers and more than 800 of the globe’s greatest scientific minds.
The mission of bluedot is to explore the frontiers of human advancement, to celebrate science and the exploration of the universe, to challenge the boundaries between science, culture, art and technology, and to highlight the beauty and fragility of Earth.
We love the all-inclusive nature of the festival - and by partnering with this ambitious, family-friendly cultural event we hope to help make an impact and inspire change for all of its attendees. During the festival we’ll be creating new interactive areas as well as hosting some bluedot-themed events within our existing buildings ahead of the festival itself.
The three-year partnership sees us further expand our support of ground-breaking culture and creativity. The festival nurtures a love of science, arts and music and brings the regions into focus culturally.
