Being Human festival 2022

Being Human, the UK's national festival of the humanities, returns to towns and cities across the country from 10 to 19 November 2022. Each year, Being Human presents hundreds of free events across the UK and beyond. All festival events are led directly by researchers, in collaboration with cultural and community organisations. Events are designed to celebrate and demonstrate the ways in which the humanities inspire and enrich our everyday lives, help us to understand ourselves, our relationships with others, and the challenges we face in a changing world.

In 2022 the programme contains over 200 free events, showcasing research spanning everything from cutting-edge dance technology, to the 1900th anniversary of Hadrian's Wall.
