Wonkfest is an exciting new event in the UK HE calendar. It’s a policy jamboree: a festival of wonkery and cutting edge debate about the future of universities. With mountains of interesting things to do and see, we think it will be the best two days out of the office that you’ll ever have.


With five different stages, our non-stop programme hosts over 50 sessions with more than 60 speakers.
