St Davids Festival of Ideas

Information from the organisers…

The first ever St Davids Festival of Ideas is happening on 12 and 13 March 2021. Join us online and for free.

The notion of holding a Festival of Ideas in St Davids came about through its being a place where people congregate, to share and exchange experience.

Two days of illuminating, inspiring and engaging discussions, talks and debates on subjects include:

The Future of the United Kingdom, The Challenge of Climate Change , A Radical Defence of the Human Being, Tiny Actions that can Change the World, Mental Health in Rural communities, The Strength of Spirituality/Willing Wellbeing and much more.

Our speakers include writer and journalist Paul Mason, historian Simon Jenkins, Dean of St Davids Sarah Rowland-Jones, actor Jerome Flynn, politicians Eluned Morgan, Adam Price, David Melding and Alun Davies, community activists and social entrepreneurs Mollie Roach, Andy Middleton and Sarah Beynon, poets and writers Mererid Hopwood and Peter Finch, and academic Professor Gareth Wyn Jones.

Due to Covid restrictions, our first St Davids Festival of Ideas will be held online on Zoom. Tickets are free but please register for the events you wish to attend as we have limited space for each event.

Please give an email address when you book so we can send you the Zoom link nearer the time.

Please note that all events will last 50 minutes except A Radical Defence of the Human Being and The Future of the United Kingdom.

The St Davids Festival of Ideas is free. All speakers have kindly offered to give their time and enthusiasm, and the Festival has been set up and organised by a committed group of volunteers from St Davids, Solva and Cardiff.

We do need donations to keep the Festival going, so please donate if you can. There is a donation option on our Eventbrite page or you can make a donation here.

Thank you. We look forward to welcoming you to the first ever St Davids Festival of Ideas.
