Engaging, inspiring, exciting: A new festival for Cambridge

Last year, we announced a brand new, exciting festival for Cambridge, which will replace the hugely popular Cambridge Science Festival and the Cambridge Festival of Ideas. The Cambridge Festival will host an extensive series of free, online events between 26 March – 4 April this year.  The inaugural Festival aims to tackle and offer solutions for humanity’s most pressing issues, from pandemics, climate change, and global economics, to human rights and the future of democracy.

The Festival will have strong and distinct platforms for the Sciences and the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. On offer will be a uniquely Cambridge eclectic mixture of over 350 events and activities: from panel discussions, film premieres, and guided walking tours, to ‘try this at home’ activities for the whole family.

Topics cover the breadth of Cambridge research and will be presented across the Festival’s four themes: Society, Health, Environment and Explore!
The full event listings will be available to browse and book from Monday 22 February 2021. To stay up-to-date and be the first to hear about updates about the Festival, be sure to sign up to our What’s On mailing list and follow us on social media.
