Big Ideas by The Sea Festival
Big Ideas By The Sea is back in Scarborough! The festival will bring leading speakers, thinkers, and creative people from science, the arts, business, technology and the environment to debate the Big Ideas that concern all of us.
Set between moor, wolds and sea, Scarborough offers festival participants a unique and inspiring setting for fun and debate.
Until the advent of the railway, ideas travelled with people on foot and by sea. Seaports were the entry and exit point of exchange and cross-fertilisation, a place where ideas landed, took root, and flourished. Scarborough is a coastal town deeply rooted in its historical relationship with the sea. The town is now a centre of creative thought and dynamic action that address these issues.
