What we do

The Chelmsford Ideas Festival aims to stimulate and inspire people through a set of innovative events, talks and workshops.

Established in 2011, the Ideas Festival brings positive change to Chelmsford through providing a range of cultural events covering arts, heritage, technology and much more. The festival runs from the 14th of October until the 31st of October, with other events during the week. This year the Ideas Festival is partnering with Art of The Possible which showcases innovation across the region.

This is your festival and your chance to debate and participate, developing our City into something great! We look forward to seeing you.
