Mon 1 Jan 0001 - Sun 14 Jun 2020
Prepare for a journey of discovery that will educate, entertain and inspire you from the comfort of your own home.
The annual York Festival of Ideas 2020 may not be able to take place as originally intended, however the team are determined that the show must go on, and will be taking place online from 2 to 14 June under the banner of Virtual Horizons.
The team behind this incredibel festival have been working hard with their partners to bring together a diverse programme of talks, music, activities and community trails (to explore on your daily exercise). World-class speakers will cover topics from How to Grow a Human with Phil Ball, to a fascinating tour through the valley of the shadow fo digital death with psychologist Elaine Kasket, while Tansy Hoskins will explain just what exactly your shoes are doing to the world.
So pop the kettle on or top up your glass and join the online realm of ideas...
Set a reminder for all the latest events coming soon by visiting the York Festival of Ideas 2020 website.
We can't go out so we're not spending money on things like coffee and cakes, glass of wine or beer, and generally eating out and socialising.
Why not pop the money you’ve saved on some of these things into a jar and put it towards the Raise the Roof appeal. If we ask friends and family to do the same we could raise a reasonable amount of money for the appeal.
Even if we only put a couple of pounds a week away it would all add up. What do you think - shall we give it a go? It would be great if once our wonderful theatre can reopen we have lots of jars of money to hand over!
