The University of Leicester was delighted to welcome over 400 visitors to our 17 events within the 2019 Festival of Social Science. Thank you to all the guests who attended our events – we hope you found them informative and engaging.

This year’s Festival included events, lectures, seminars and guided walks that covered a wide range of hot topics including healthcare, rehabilitating offenders, religiously-motivated hate crime, climate change, architecture, disability and inequality, responding to childhood trauma, prescribing cannabis, rural living, museum activism, feminism and activism, and the positive social benefits of boxing.
