Bristol Festival of Ideas


Festival Member


Various, Bristol

Established in 2005, the Bristol Festival of Ideas emerged out of Bristol’s bid to be Capital of Culture in 2008 and is an initiative of Bristol Cultural Development Partnership (Bristol City Council, BusinessWest, University of Bristol, University of the West of England).

The Bristol Festival of Ideas aims to stimulate people’s minds and passions with an inspiring programme of discussion and debate with great writers, commentators and thinkers in and outside the city. The programme is year-round and includes an annual Festival of Economics (November) and a bi-annual Festival of the Future City.
