FT Weekend Festival 2017
Sat 2 September 2017, 10:00 – 20:00 BST
The FT Weekend's annual festival will celebrate the wit, elegance and eclectic range of enthusiasms which are our hallmark. The FT's best-loved writers and columnists from Lucy Kellaway, Martin Wolf and Tim Harford to Jancis Robinson and Robin Lane Fox, from David Tang, Janan Ganesh and Tyler Brûlé to Gillian Tett and Merryn Somerset Webb, will hold forth on and debate the ideas and passions that delight, inspire and infuriate the FT Weekend tribe. They and leading editors from the FT Weekend and How To Spend It, will host dozens of leading figures from art, music, literature, dance, business, food and drink to fashion and politics in the grounds of Kenwood House on the edge of Hampstead Heath.
Our all-day event will unfold on a series of stages: Food & Drink, How To Spend It, House & Home, FT Money, Arts & Fashion, Books, Travel and a central stage for the principal debates. The FT Weekend is, as one reader wrote to me recently, "nourishment for the mind and soul". So come and be nourished; and for those who attended last year's inaugural festival, in the spirit of our age, prepare for innovation - as in our journalism each weekend.
