From 20–30 September 2018 we’re teaming up with Sheffield’s creative and digital community for a celebration of ideas, culture and collaboration.

Last year’s festival saw 50,000 visitors attend 75+ events across 16 venues.

To our partners and to the thousands of people who came along to the events, performances and exhibitions, thank you. You once again made the Festival of the Mind a big success.
