Fantastic Festival!

After months of meticulous planning and preparation, our Festival of the Imagination took place over the weekend! And what an amazing weekend it was. From fabulous talks, demos and debates to fantastic food and drink and the incredibly popular National Grid Discovery Zone, the weekend truly offered something for everyone.

With over 8,400 people on campus for the Festival, it was wonderful to see so many of our staff, students, alumni and local community soaking up the Festival atmosphere and enjoying everything the weekend had to offer.


Student radio station RaW kindly recorded some of the sessions at the Festival of the Imagination, which you can listen to below. They also produced this short film, which sums up the festival atmostphere perfectly!

You can also listen to recordings of the day here.

Thank you

This event wouldn't have happened without the incredibly hard work and commitment of the Festival Organising Committee and the huge number of staff and students who volunteered their time to help at the event, in a range of roles, throughout the weekend - thank you to you all!

What you're saying

Thanks for a great day at #WarwickFoI mind has been expanded!

I studied here 30 years ago and bought my son back with me to show him that there are things beyond studying – his jaw is on the floor at everything on offer!

Brilliant morning out @warwickuni50 #WarwickFoI Loads of creative family fun, some amazing research teams, and delicious plaza street food.

It’s great to be able to show people what Universities are all about. What we’re doing here is linked to what students are learning in school, so it’s great that they can see the real world applications of it.
