Following on from its success, recognition and highly positive critique in 2012, The Sunday Times Festival of Education is back in 2013 and destined to reach even greater heights!
Having cemented itself as the UK’s premier forum for thought leadership, innovation and development in the field of education, the Sunday Times Festival of Education continues to attract the very best of education’s most forward thinking advocates, practitioners of change and policy makers.
The event hosts two thousand attendees and speakers including government ministers and renowned names such as David Starkey, the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, Sir Bob Geldof and the music promoter Harvey Goldsmith.
The Festival of Education boasts an eclectic mix of themes; last year Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali discussed faith in schools, Imogen Stubbs and Alexander Armstrong read poetry and the racing driving Sir Jackie Stewart and AA Gill presented on dyslexia. The Festival has gained significant support from sponsors and partners including Google, Microsoft, Dell, the BBC, the RSC, O2 Learn, and Pearson.
