Running from October 18th-20th, the festival brings together politicians, writers, artists, academics, journalists, scientists, change-makers, students and the public to create the largest public debate about the future of cities.
Philosophers, policy makers, futurists, filmmakers, charities, social enterprises and city-builders are also involved.
Organisers have put together a fascinating programme and attendees can expect at least 150 speakers to participate in the festival. Many events are free, but some do carry a small charge. Booking is required.
