Festival of Ideas


The Headingley Festival of Ideas is all about creative ideas which may not necessarily lead to something – although some might – but the main purpose is to tap into the joy of ideas, debate and discussion. We aim to appeal to the wide variety of people in Headingley, and to all age groups.

The first Festival of Ideas took place in 2014 with a 2 week programme of 13 events and activities attended by over 600 people. The full 2014 programme and report is available here.

The 2015 Festival was held from 3-17 October – more information and programme details can be found here.

A few Taster Events were held in October 2016 and our next Festival will be held in May 2017 with a theme of ‘Journey‘.
