Could a new theory of the Universe be Stephen Hawking’s biggest legacy? How has popular music addressed political conflict? Are the big tech firms the new colonialists? And is the education system making the crisis in mental health in young women and girls worse?

These are a few of the questions set to be addressed during one of the largest festivals of its kind in the country, the annual Cambridge Festival, which launches its 2023 programme on Monday 13 February. Bookings open on the same day.

Coordinated by the University of Cambridge, the Festival, which runs from 17 March until 2 April, packs a hefty cultural punch with over 360 in person and online, mostly free events. Subjects range from politics and technology to health and climate change. There are five core themes: Power, Society, Health, Environment and Discovery.
