Save the date for Bedales’ first Philosophy Festival

We are excited to announce “Philosophy of…”, a festival taking place on 13 September at Bedales during which an extremely diverse range of brilliant speakers, including Baroness Kishwer Falkner, Jeremy Paxman, Beatrix Campbell OBE, Sinclair Beecham, John Caird, Dr David Read, Emma Bridgewater, Rev Will Hughes, Dr Kamyar Afarinkia, Philip Young, Dr Valerie Sinason, and Dolores Iorizzo will share their passions, from a philosophical slant, in a series of lectures and debates. The festival is being organised by a group of Bedales students, with the support of Keith. So, please save the date as we’d love to have as large and varied an audience as possible; from students, parents and teachers to the general public. Details of further speakers and how to book will be announced next term. Whatever you love, let’s consider the “Philosophy of” it. Read more.
