We’re coming to the end of our 2013 programme but are busy making plans for 2014. Many of our past events are available to listen to on SoundCloud. To see films of all the sessions in this year’s Festival of Economics for free, register online HERE.
What’s next (below) has a summary of our next three events and Coming up (on left) has a list of the next six. For the full list of events go to What’s on. Each event entry has full booking details. Ticket sales are usually run by the venues where the event takes place as we do not have a central box office; tickets for free events are usually only available when booked online using Eventbrite. New events are launched regularly. To be the first to hear about upcoming events, sign up to our mailing list and Twitter feed. We also regularly post news, audio/video links and background information on our Tumblr blog.
Our 10th anniversary appeal
The Festival of Ideas celebrates 10 years in 2014. We’ve got many special plans which we’ll launch in March next year. We’re committed to keeping ticket prices low, and having as many free events as we can. We want the festival to grow as well over the next 10 years. We need your help with this. You can donate to the festival via Paypal below (the donation will be made to Bristol Cultural Development Partnership – which manages the festival – but all donations will go to the festival). All donations are welcome. By working together in this way we can make sure that we continue to celebrate and debate ideas from around the world.
