The Home of Big Ideas

The flagship ideas tent at the heart of the festival. We believe the old adage that there is no such thing as a bad pupil – only uncomfortable seats and a lack of decent cocktails. Here is where the brightest buttons convene to make you think, question and laugh at the world today - before putting it back together again.​ Past years have seen fiery debates and keynote orators, from the likes of Sir Anthony Gormley to Vince Cable, Sir Martin Rees to Charlotte Church, Will Young to Ruby Wax and Shappi Knorsandi to John Lloyd to name but a few. Bring an open mind, a drink or two and settle in.
