How do we make the cities that we really want to live in? The future of cities is fraught with challenges, but full of possibility.

The second Festival of the Future City takes place 18-20 October 2017. Set over three days the festival – which aims to be the largest public debate about the future of cities – brings together politicians, writers, artists, scientists, change-makers, academics, journalists, students, the public, economists, futurists, policy makers, roboticists, philosophers, filmmakers, think tanks, charities, social enterprises, city-builders and more. Join them to explore the key issues for the future of our cities: how we can solve growing inequality and segregation; build healthy cities and places; foster sustainable cities; and explore a future of devolved powers.

Key speakers include: Sir David King (UK permanent Special Representative for Climate Change September 2013 until March 2017; previously the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor from 2000 to 2007); Ben Derbyshire (president, RIBA); Ricky Burdett (LSE); Claudia Rankine (Harvard); Lord Heseltine; Saskia Sassen (Columbia); Simon Stevens (NHS England); Julia Unwin (Civil Society Commission); Geoff Mulgan (NESTA); Rachel Cooper (University of Lancaster); Anna Lisa Boni (Eurocities); Alaina Harkness (Brookings), Mark Cousins (filmmaker); Torsten Bell (Resolution Foundation); Kit de Waal (writer); Liane Hartley (Urbanistas); Gavin Kelly (Resolution Trust); Molly Crabapple (artist); David Olusoga (historian and broadcaster); Ben Rogers (Centre for London); Afua Hirsch (broadcaster); Martin Green (Director, Hull City of Culture 2017); Charles Landry (Comedia); Sunder Katwala (British Future); Marvin Rees (Mayor of Bristol); Caroline Lucas MP; Claire Craig (former deputy Government Office for Science, now Royal Society) and George Monbiot (journalist).

Festival of the Future City Bath

Festival of Ideas is working with partners in Bath to extend the festival to neighbouring areas.

In an ever-changing economic and political climate, Festival of the Future City Bath will inspire new thinking on urban habitation and planning. Set against the backdrop of one of the world’s most cherished architectural landscapes, and with a focus on urban development in the twenty-first century, it will explore three principal themes: housing, the artist and the city, and great architecture, both locally and globally.

Three days of talks, workshops and walks exploring architectural gems will address the
question: ‘Whose City is It?’, taking in the complexities of a place like Bath, one of only
two cities in the world with UNESCO world heritage status (the other being Venice). How
should cities reinvigorate their character and economy when looking to the future?

For tickets and booking and full programme information visit The Edge website.

Exhibition: Achieve - health and well-being inspiration!

achieve opener.JPG

Be inspired to achieve your health, wealth and happiness goals. Martin Roberts, TV Property Expert, star of ‘Homes Under The Hammer’ and ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ invites you to his new Achieve exhibition in Bath this Autumn. Visit over 50 leading brands and choose from 14 leading celebrity speakers to motivate and equip you with practical tips to help you on your way.

Taking small steps can lead to big changes

Martin Roberts kicked off his own lifestyle transformation while in the Australian jungle as a contestant on the popular ITV show I’m a Celebrity…Get me out of Here. Some of it was forced on him due to the quality of the food provided… However, Martin’s work schedule and family commitments over the last decade has meant that time to focus on his own personal health and wellbeing was not always a top priority.

For the weekend of 14th- 15th October, Martin is taking over the Assembly Rooms in Bath and organising an exhibition and seminar programme showcasing the best from the worlds of health, nutrition, wealth creation, mindfulness and positivity. 

The exhibition is free of charge to register for an early bird offer before October 1st, but there is a charge to be part of the audience with the speakers.
