Festival of the Future

2020 has been challenging for so many of us. Let's cheer ourselves up, combine fun and learning and share the good stuff that's happening in Dorset at our virtual Festival of the Future. Think Bestival or Glastonbury, but with more tea, future-gazing and Linkedin profiles. Singing on stage is optional.
