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.

This year’s Festival, due to take place from 9 – 25 May, promises a feast of information, discussion and debate on the theme of BORDERS – more details and downloadable programmes are available here.

Past Events

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

We aim to appeal to the wide variety of people in Headingley, and to all age groups.
