20-23 July 2023 Jodrell Bank Observatory


As the Sun disappears and the Moon rises over bluedot, watch as the Outer Space comes to life. Open only after dark, the Outer Space area is the place to discover unique artworks in a wooded cornucopia of fire, light and ambient sound. The Outer Space area is located in the Arboretum, close to the exciting brand new First Light development, and will open at 10pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

Expect a range of brand new commissions and bespoke light-based sculptures, spread across the beautiful Arboretum gardens, showcasing some of the UK’s most exciting and imaginative installation artists. From playable sonic harps, through to floating planets and flickering fires, lose yourself in this vibrant garden of otherworldly objects.
