Bookings are now live for the 2021 digital Alumni Festival.

This year’s Alumni Festival will take place online with an array of fascinating talks, tours and discussions for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home. The Festival features over 80 sessions across five days, from Friday 24 September to Tuesday 28 September. 

As ever, the Festival offers a range of thought-provoking sessions, tackling the big questions and the small. Join us to hear why calorie counting is wrong from Giles Yeo, or listen in as a panel of Gates Cambridge scholars explore the future of energy. We close the Festival on the biggest challenge of our age when Director of Cambridge Zero, Dr Emily Shuckburgh OBE, joins the Vice-Chancellor to discuss the climate emergency. 

How to book

Each session has an individual booking form, which means you can continue to build your Festival schedule, including booking new sessions as they are added in the coming months. This also allows your guests to make their own bookings, and receive their own individual session link.

Where possible sessions will be recorded and made available for you to listen or watch after the Festival. For any questions about how to book, or if you’d like more information, take a look at our helpful FAQ page.
