Malvern Festival of Ideas is a multidisciplinary and inclusive weekend of events on what matters. The theme for the 2020 Weekend is A Brave new World? In a rapidly changing world, can we look to the future positively and with hope? In what ways can emerging ideas in areas relating to social policy, economics, medicine, science, politics, psychology, arts, foreign policy and faith lead to a better world? Themed sessions explore the topic from some of these perspectives and the accompanying discussions and activities will allow participants to follow up their own interests within the overall theme.
The Family Day Programme is an essential part of the Weekend. This year, it includes interactive story-telling and activity sessions a themed mathematics session on the environment.
Refreshments will be available at many of the venues. Buffet lunches must be booked in advance—please see the event descriptions.
