Festival of Learning 2016

The festival of learning is in its fourth year and the dates for 2016 have been set as Saturday 25 – Wednesday 29 June for a shorter and more compact 5 day festival. Do make a note of these dates in your diary and let your friends and family know as there will be a huge variety of events they will be able to attend, all for free!

What kind of events could I put on?

We’re open to ideas and willing to support a wide variety of events, you could run anything from a professional development workshop to an art exhibition or you could just have a stool with some hands on activities for passers-by.

Some examples:

  • Gaming, computing and coding
  • Everyday professional skills
  • Health and fitness
  • Topics involving real-world issues
  • Media workshops

I’m keen to run an event! What do I do now?
