The award winning bluedot festival will be opening its doors for the first time with The Blue Planet in Concert, performed by The Hallé Orchestra to kick off a brand new family four-day format. The show combines live music against a backdrop of remarkable footage from the original Blue Planet 2001 television series produced by the acclaimed BBC Natural History Unit.

Conducted by the composer, the Halle will perform George Fenton's internationally critically acclaimed concert version of the original Blue Planet, promising a unique and awe-inspiring spectacle in HD, exploring the vast oceans on our pale blue dot, and the challenges we face for the future.

Opening the concert on the Thursday will be Laura Misch, a saxophonist, vocalist and producer popular with Gilles Peterson and Worldwide FM, whose extraordinary one-woman show fuses jazz and progressive electronic genres through exploring the space between analogue and electronically-manipulated sound.

Enjoy The Blue Planet in Concert with the Hallé by booking a VIP ticket, allowing you access to the Celestial VIP bar and bathroom. With stunning views of the stage and an unrivalled backdrop of the giant Lovell telescope, the Celestial VIP bar is a great place to relax with a drink of choice and enjoy the show.
