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.

The 2019 Festival, took place from 9 – 25 May and involved information, discussion and debate on the theme of BORDERS. It was very successful  but maybe the last, we need a new team to pick up the project and maintain the high standards achieved. If you are interested then please get in touch.

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.

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