Welcome to the Festival! Plans are taking shape for the 32nd Festival, and we’ll be posting update here.
First of all the dates – the seven days of 1-7 September 2022.
For the format, we’re still taking stock of the situation, and it’s looking like we will have a hybrid format, a mix of online and on-the-ground, and we hope to have worked out the exact details by early spring 2022.
We’re finding it a very stimulating challenge, and we’re hoping to come up with a very lively and fresh mix of events. We’re looking forward to having more details to share soon.
And in the meantime, there’s much to find out on this site, including the full programme from 2021, with links to the various events which you can access on our YouTube channel. You can also find more about our background and see highlights of past festivals, and see more of Orkney itself. We have films to watch, music to listen to, and blogs to read, with a varied range of topics in science and exploration. In this way, you can get a real flavour of the Festival and of Orkney itself, and we’re looking forward to posting up information about 2022 to follow up.
