Malvern Festival of Ideas 2021

Start: 5th March 2021 6:00 pm End: 7th March 2021 3:30 pm

Malvern Festival of Ideas is a multidisciplinary festival of ideas that takes place in Malvern, Worcestershire, but in 2021 will be an online event. It is a themed weekend of talks, discussion and activities.

In 2021, the title of the Festival is Unity and Diversity. Over recent years there has been increasing polarisation in debates in the public domain, fuelled in part by Brexit but also other factors. More recently, there has been much talk about unity as brought about internationally by the global pandemic. Is the uniting force in some ways is stronger than divisions? What can we learn from our (positive) experiences and build on to face future threats and how? How do we need to change? What reforms are needed?

Beginning in 2012, 2021 marks the 10th festival.  Details of registration can be found below.


As usual, there will be sessions throughout the weekend. We have an excellent set of speakers and the website will be updated as further additions are made to the programme.
