Festival of Economics 2024

The 2024 Festival will take place in venues across Bristol on 30 September to 3 October.

At the annual Festival of Economics, economists and experts from around the world debate the key economic questions of our time. This year, sessions will explore:

  • lessons from the past,
  • the UK economy in an election year, and
  • Britain's place in the world.

We will be announcing events and speakers in the coming months - please check back for details.

The Festival of Economics is a Bristol Ideas legacy event and is presented with their support.
