After a hugely successful pilot in 2016, which saw BU’s established Festival of Learning go global in both China and Malaysia, we are delighted to announce that the global Festival of Learning will return for a second year. Three distinct weeks of exciting events will take place to showcase global Fusion in ASEAN, India and China from March – May 2017.
Celebrating its fifth anniversary, the Festival of Learning will run in Bournemouth from 8-12 July 2017, with a vibrant opening family weekend and a diverse selection of events throughout the week. The Festival will conclude with a global day on 12 July to celebrate the fantastic array of events and learning taking place around the world as part of the Festival of Learning.
