Virtual Festival of Arts, Science & Ideas

Our Newnham Festival will now be staged in two parts – the first delivered digitally on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 July 2021.

Over a weekend of talks, workshops and events, there will be big ideas from leading thinkers, magical myths for children, specially commissioned music and song from Newnham’s rising stars, yoga, poetry, stargazing, films celebrating Newnham greats, and much more. It’s an opportunity to try out new activities, explore new thinking, and re-connect with old friends.

Across the Internet, you’ll still be able to enjoy our beautiful gardens, see the wonderful new facilities in the Dorothy Garrod Building, listen to recitals and learn about some of Newnham’s best-kept secrets…

Our Live Festival will now take place in 2022 (Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 July 2022). Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Cambridge – you will be able to join in online.
