Featuring world-class speakers, exhibitions, theatre, music, films, guided walks, family-friendly activities and much more, York Festival of Ideas offers a huge range of stimulating and diverse events for all ages and interests. York Festival of Ideas was launched in June 2011 as a partnership between the University of York, York Theatre Royal, York Museums Trust, the National Centre for Early Music and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Its objective, then and now, is to enhance York’s reputation as a city of ideas and innovation through offering the highest calibre of public events to local, regional and visitor audiences. Growing year-on-year, the Festival now attracts an audience of well over 30,000 and works in partnership with more than 100 local and national organisations.

Carla Soto was part of the Festival Fringe Family Fun Afternoon. This event entails an afternoon of energetic, crafty, puzzling, scientific and historical fun with University of York postgraduate students and staff at the Festival Fringe Family Fun Afternoon. Activities are particularly suitable for five to 11-year-olds but other family members were welcome to join in too.
