Event type:
Location: Kings Place, London

The Guardian newspaper is hosting a weekend-long festival of ideas, innovation and entertainment with the paper’s editors and journalists joined by outside experts and thousands of readers at Kings Place in London on March 24th and 25th.

Sunder Katwala, Director of British Future, will take part in a Sunday morning panel, asking What is the new age of protest achieving?  with BBC Newsnight’s Paul Mason, Anna Solomons of UK Uncut and Kai Wargalla from Occupy London, chaired by The Guardian’s Becky Gardiner.

One Saturday afternoon panel sees two politician-historians Kwasi Kwarteng and Tristram Hunt join Simon Jenkins, Kate Williams and Madeleine Bunting to ask What English history do we need? while another event sees playwright Jez Butterworth in conversation with Guardian theatre editor Andrew Dickson about the success of his play Jerusalem.

The weekend event includes dozens of events and hundreds of speakers.
