Social Spaces

Whilst the programme with hundreds of sessions is at the heart of Limmud Festival (click here to find out more), there is even more to explore at Festival 2017!

The Limmud Bar

One of the buzzing and vibrant centres of the Limmud Festival experience, the Limmud Bar will once again be a great place to catch up with friends and make new connections with other participants. Not only will all of your favourite drinks be available from one of the many bar volunteers who will be waiting to help you out, but there will also be a cocktail of the day for you to sample. Whether you’re getting into the party spirit or unwinding after another great day, the Limmud Bar will certainly be a place you can’t miss!

Alternate Bars

Sometimes you’re looking for something a bit different in the evening to the regular bar. The wine bar will offer a more sophisticated and quieter experience for those seeking something totally different. Whatever you’re looking for, there will be something just waiting for you at Limmud Festival.


Whether you need a hot drink to refuel, a small bite to eat or just a comfortable place to meet friends, the Limmud Cafe will be the perfect place for you. The Cafe will be open all day, every day of Limmud Festival, serving top quality coffee and a range of home-made cakes and baked treats.

Limmud Shuk

The famous Limmud Shuk will be returning and this year will be bigger than ever. The Shuk will have something for everyone - browse the bookshop for a great read, grab some merchandise for yourself and visit our independent and boutique stalls to find something that takes your fancy.

Late Night Food

Sometimes, later in the evening, you just need some extra food and our Late Night Food options will solve that in a hurry. There will be a range of delicious light hot food options and bar snacks for everyone - meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans alike.
