Intergalactic festival of music, science, art, technology & the exploration of space | Jodrell Bank Observatory | Bluedot returns summer 2017. Join us for a full weekend of fascinating talks from best-selling authors and award-winning academics, covering everything from how to ‘eat in the future’ to how the ‘brain make us laugh’ and the science of magic and mindfulness.

The Observer Science & Tech will host an afternoon of talks and debates around Fake News, with leading journalists and politicians discussing whether the increasing trend in our post-truth, post-Trump world threatens democracy itself; and The Dark Web – a magical mystery tour around the darker side of the internet, where anyone can operate under a cloak of anonymity, and why we should care what happens there, hosted by Geoff White, head of Tech for Channel 4.

There will also be an exclusive screening and live rescore of The Moomins and The Comet – the Tove Jansson classic by the original composer.
