The Homerton 250 Festival


A one-day festival of music, science, drama and more to celebrate 250 years of Homerton College.

Expect some serious fun in our one-day celebration of 250 years of free-thinking education!

Saturday, 27 October 2018 is Homerton College’s 250th birthday. To mark the occasion we will be welcoming our wide community of friends, neighbours, and families, and past and present students, staff, and Fellows to enjoy a day of serious fun.

There will be workshops, talks, walks, storytelling, music, art, science, masterclasses and demonstrations for people of all ages.

There will be opportunities to explore the three Burning Questions we are asking throughout the year:

  • What is the future of healthcare?
  • What does it mean to be human?
  • How do we drive change?

There will be an Alice in Wonderland themed lunch in our Victorian Great Hall. Come in costume, if you wish!

And at the end of the afternoon, Dame Evelyn Glennie, inspirational world class percussionist and Honorary Fellow of Homerton College, will lead a percussion masterclass.

The programme is developing all the time – register for our email updates and be the first to know when booking begins.
