Festival of Ideas

The annual Festival of Ideas is a series of lectures and seminars given by distinguished visiting speakers and staff of George Watson’s College all of whom address the same question or idea but from a variety of different perspectives. At the centre of the Festival is the Caritas Lecture which is the School’s annual public lecture given by someone of national or international distinction.
