Festival of Ideas

Create. Discover. Learn.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first ever on-campus, Festival of Ideas, on 17–18 May 2024! It was an incredible showcase of innovation, and we hope you left feeling inspired and energised by the experience.

From engaging panel discussions to captivating performances, interactive exhibitions, and thought-provoking virtual reality simulations, we're thrilled to have offered over 50 free sessions that explored a wide array of ideas and topics.

Whether you met our robots, delved into the future of healthcare in Hertfordshire, admired our fashion design students' final collections, decoded food labels, or envisioned sustainable towns, your participation made this event truly special.

If you attended, we hope you had a fantastic time. Your enthusiasm and curiosity contributed to the vibrant atmosphere of the Festival.
