Festival of Ideas 2015

Bookings have now opened for the Cambridge Festival of Ideas, a packed two-week programme featuring hundreds of events, from 19 October-1 November.

Cambridge Festival of Ideas explores new and original thinking on some of the most pressing issues of the day. The aim of the Festival is to fuel people’s interest in arts, humanities and social sciences through a series of events ranging from talks, debates and film screenings to exhibitions and comedy nights. Of the over 250 events at the Festival, most are free.

This short film, "Perceptions", gives you a taste of what to expect from the Festival.
