Festival of Ideas is annual event that happens in the October and is held by Cambridge University. It started in 2008 and was meant to get the public engaged with the University.
There are a variety of talks usually based around the theme of the event. Some of them you have to prebook and there are things for all ages and interests. These events are free unless otherwise stated. This is a great way to keep your children busy during half term and see the kind of things that are being discussed at Cambridge University.
I have learned about a variety of issues such as the history of the Cavendish Laboratory, how to scientifically wine taste and about the ghosts in the time of Shakespeare.
All the Best!
