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 mainly runs on four weekends from the 22nd of October till the 12th of November, with other events during the week.
This is your festival and your chance to debate and participate, developing our City into something great.
