“Science has no frontier” – These words by Sir Bernard Lovell FRS are displayed on the wall of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, where each year nerds, geeks, music lovers, and people from all walks of life come together to celebrate the frontier-free nature of science and music at bluedot festival. With fun activities and science talks during the day and inspiring and jaw-droppingly good music in the afternoon and evenings, the festival catered to all in attendance.
