The Telegraph Festival of Education at Wellington College attracts an enviable line up of speakers from across the spectrum of educational thinking across two days 22/23 June.
We’re delighted to announce a fringe screening/discussion evening alongside it this year on Thursday 22nd June in a local school community to celebrate and discuss creativity in education, business and society.
