What is Limmud Festival?
Last year one participant called it “a miraculous explosion of Jewish experience”, and we couldn’t agree more!
Limmud Festival is a perfect jigsaw, made by every participant. We draw the outline and you colour it in with content as diverse and appealing as the 2500 people who attend each year. We believe anyone can be a teacher if they choose, and everyone should be a student. The platform is yours.
During the day, create your own journey through Festival with a huge range of sessions on everything from political panel conversations to Sephardi culture lectures, from communication skills training to Jewish arts and crafts workshops.
Then top it off at the much celebrated home of philosophical discussion and network building: The Bar. Nightlife is a huge part of the festival. In between forming ideas to save the world over a drink or two, a plethora of entertainment choice awaits you, from live band Karaoke to storytelling competitions, or award winning comedians to late night debates on Jewish text.
This year, we are pleased to announce a price reduction for families and volunteers, making Limmud Festival more accessible than ever for all ages and participation styles. So whether you want to meet new people with similar interests or connect with long-time friends, there is always a conversation to be part of and something new to discover.
What’s more, being part of Limmud Festival isn’t just being an attendee, it’s being part of a community; one which learns together and which takes an active part in co-creating the event. Every aspect of Festival is built and run by volunteers who infuse every corner of the site with their passion and excitement. If you would like to be part of this endeavour, get in touch or tell us on your application form.
With hundreds of sessions and thousands of participants from around the UK and across the world making up the most vibrant Festival community, follow your passions or do something totally new, as you create connections and long lasting memories.
Come build your own unique experience and be a piece of the puzzle – we really mean it. Book your place today.
